Adding a teaching assistant to a section

Note: To complete the procedures in this document, you need to be assigned a role that has the necessary permissions. To find out what your role is, follow the directions in Participant roles. To see a list of what permissions are associated with a given role, see Permissions, roles, and tools. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and Roles: Overview.

  2. From the list of site participants, find the member you would like to assign the role of teaching assistant.

  3. Under "Role", use the drop-down menu to select TeachingAssistant.

  4. When you are finished, click Update Participants.

Adding a teaching assistant to a section

  3. From the list of worksite members, select the participant you wish to add, and click the right arrow to move to the box on the right.
