Step six: set up faculty users

The Faculty role gives a user the ability to run all aspects of the courses for which she is listed as Faculty (same with the Teaching Assistant role), with a few exceptions:

  • They cannot modify basic course information (e.g. abbreviation, description, credits, etc.).
  • They cannot unfinalize courses.
  • If they're only given read-only access to a particular course, they can view but otherwise not edit nor interact with the course.
  • If they're listed as Hidden they will not be visible to students.

To get your faculty users ready to run courses in Populi...

  1. Find the profile of the person who needs the faculty role. If you can't find her, you may need to add a new person.
  2. Follow the instructions in this article to add the Faculty and/or Teaching Assistant roles to the user.
  3. On her Profile > Info view, make sure you have a valid email address entered for her.
  4. Grant her user access to Populi.
  5. Set up course instances (which is covered in the next step.
  6. Direct these users to the faculty articles.

Next: start adding courses to your academic terms...
