How do I assign a user (author or reviewer) to a course or courses?

You can assign an author to courses so that they have access to it for development and other tasks.

You can assign a reviewer to courses so that they can view the course and enter feedback for Reviewer Notes.

When you assign a course to a user, an email is automatically sent from Claro to the user.

It may be useful to allow more than one author access to a course in development. This allows multiple authors privileges to edit, upload, modify, and approve course elements.

To assign users from the course browser:

  1. Open the browser from QuickLinks or the App menu.
  2. Select the course you want to assign users to.
  3. Click the Actions button.
  4. From the menu, select Assign Users.
  5. Select the user you want to assign and click Assign.
    Note: You can also Set Review Date, Invite Users and Unassign users from this modal. To unassign a user, select the Assigned tab, select the user and then click Unassign.

To assign a user to a course from the Review Menu

It’s easier to quickly assign reviewers and authors to a course directly from the Review toolbar. You can also schedule the review period and invite new users.
