Adding Graduate and Teaching Assistants to Course Sites

Instructors can not manually add or remove student accounts to their course sites since this is automatically done through the integration between the student information system and mycourselink.  However, instructors do have the ability to add Graduate and Teaching Assistant roles to their sites by following these steps:

From the Classlist link:

  • Select Add Participants
  • Select Add Existing Users (TAs)
  • Enter the First Name, Last Name, Student Number, or Username in the Add Existing Users search field then click on the magnifying glass. The teaching assistant you are adding should appear in the search results list.
  • Check the box to the left of the TA’s name
  • Select the appropriate TA role from the Select a Role drop-down menu
  • Select any one of the Sections from the dropdown list. If a course has multiple sections, TAs will be added to all sections of a course regardless of which section is selected here.
  • Click the Enrol Selected Users button to complete the process

If the Graduate or Teaching Assistant is not an existing user, contact the Teaching Commons at with the assistant's information and we’ll add them to the course site.

To change an assistant's  enrolment to one of the other TA levels:

  • Check the box to the left of the participant’s name
  • Click the Enrolment link (above the list of class participants)
  • Select a new role from the New Role drop-down menu
  • Click Save to complete the process

Teaching Assistant (TA) Roles and Permissions:

  • Editing TA - full developing/editing/grading permissions, cannot add participants
  • Non-editing TA - no developing or editing permissions, full grading permissions, cannot add participants
