I would like for teachers to have the ability to add people (specifically other teachers) to their concluded courses. At the beginning of each term I receive an abundance of requests to add other teachers to past courses for various reasons. Currently I have to change the course term setting, then add the teacher, masquerade as teacher to accept course invitation, and then go back and reset the course term. This is a very cumbersome process. I can't think of a disadvantage to allowing teachers to add people to concluded courses but I do know it would be helpful to me!

I am going to archive this idea, as it is not something we will be developing as a general solution.
After reading all of your comments above, we have come to the following conclusions:
- When it comes to sharing course content, Commons or setting up a shared course shell is a viable solution
- Every school has different internal policies on who and when teachers and TAs can be added to a course. Creating a feature that ignores these policies is not something we should be involved in and should be handled at the local admin level.
- When we look at idea votes, we also look at diversity of voters. This idea seems to be important to less than a handful of schools. (which is why we are archiving it as a general solution). If these schools are interested in a solution, they can contact their CSM to be put in contact with Professional Services.
