Docent - Teacher

How do I assign roles in my course to colleagues and how do I delete users?

Updated on

When you have the Teacher role in a course, you can add colleagues to your course in the role of Grader, Grader-Builder, Builder and Observer. You cannot assign the role of Teacher, Student or cursist E-numbers,   to another user, as these roles are assigned via the link with OSIRIS.

If you want to add working students or student-assistants to your course, they need to have an E-number or U-number. 

If you want to learn more about the different roles and the rights associated with them, please read the article Which roles are available in Brightspace?

Add colleagues

  • Click Classlist.

Remove a colleague from a course

Apart from assigning roles, it is also possible to remove Graders, Grader-Builders, Builders and Observer from your course, for example because they are no longer active within a course (for example, think about working students).

  1. Select the user you wish to remove from the course.
  2. Click Unenrol.
  • You will see a confirmation. Click Yes.

If a user has the role of student or teacher, they cannot be removed.
