2. Manage and Support course authors

Course authors are very important users for your site. They need to have support to thrive. This section will highlight the most important operations that are needed to support the course authors.

2.1. Turn a user into a course author

Keep in mind that an author is first created as a regular user from your LMS site registration page. As such, all authors are also learners, and any support they may need in terms of user registration, activation, or password management applies the same as per regular users.

Whenever you need to turn a user into a course author, you can do so by giving them additional permissions as explained below.

2.2. Add a user to the course team

For each course in STUDIO, the user that created the course or any other course admin can add additional users to the course team.

Get this process started by login into STUDIO, select the specific course, and then select:

Settings -> Course team

2.3. Grant course-creation permissions to a user

When you signed up for the cloud subscription with eduNEXT, one user was created for your LMS site and STUDIO, and that user was granted course creation permissions from the start.

Under normal conditions, we recommend restricting the course creation operation to as few users as possible to maintain consistency across all courses that are created.

If you must share the course creation permission with additional users, you will need to request this permission to be assigned to the user by the eduNEXT support team. Before making the request, please ensure that the user is already created on the LMS site and activated.

2.4. Give your author permission to create libraries

Just as it happens with course creation permissions, for a user to be able to create libraries, permission needs to be assigned.

Under normal conditions, we recommend restricting the library creation operation to as few users as possible to maintain consistency across all libraries.

Since libraries are reusable objects, after they are created, additional users can be added to the library so that they can also modify and use the said library.

If you must share the library creation permission with additional users, you will need to request this permission to be assigned to the user by the eduNEXT support team. Before making the request, please ensure that the user is already created on the LMS site and activated.
