How do I add user accounts to a course site?

Instructors can add user accounts to a Trunk course site with the following roles:

  • Teaching Assistant (TA) - Can upload files, create and manage assignments, forums, syllabi, web content, etc. Can be given permission to grade. To give Teaching Assistants access to grading, the instructor must go to Gradebook2-->Edit-->Assign Grader Permissions.
  • Guest Instructor - Use this role to manually add instructors (those who are not associated with the course in SIS). This role has the full set of permissions and is allowed not only to build and manage a course, but also to grade, assign roles, and change permissions for those roles within a course.
  • Course Builder - Can upload files, create and manage assignments, forums, syllabi, etc. Cannot grade. This role is recommended for department admins/coordinators.
  • Librarian - Can upload files, create and manage assignments, forums, syllabi, web content, etc. Cannot grade.
  • Student NonRegistered - Use this role for Students who are not (or not yet) enrolled in the course via SIS. Can participate fully as a student.
  • Guest - Read only access, with the exception of ability to create and post to forums and messages. This role is recommended for observers.

Instructors may not add user accounts to a Trunk course site with the following roles:

  • Student - Student accounts can only be systematically added to a Trunk course site via the daily feed of iSIS information.
  • Instructor - Instructor accounts can only be systematically added to a Trunk course site via the daily feed of iSIS information.

Manually added Student and Instructor accounts are automatically deleted from the Trunk course site when the next daily feed of iSIS information is processed in Trunk.
