TAs can now edit course settings?

Thanks to millerjm@seminolestate.edu​ we just noticed that our TAs have gained access to items that they did not have before and that Teachers still do not have access to.

We have the following setting turned off for TAs:

  • Change course state

On the Course Settings Page our TAs can now change:

  • Name
  • Course Code
  • File Storage size
  • Department
  • Start Date
  • End Date
  • License
  • Visibility
  • Format

On the Course Settings Page our Teachers cannot change:

  • Name
  • Course Code
  • File Storage size
  • Department

Has anyone else noticed this change?

I just got an update on my ticket and engineering is looking at it.  Hopefully this will be resolved soon!

I'm wondering why this is "assumed answered" since it is an unresolved issue?  Is there an ETA on this being fixed?

millerjm@seminolestate.edu​, the question is marked "assumed answered" because the solution cannot be provided by members of the Community; the matter is now in the hands of Canvas Support. Normally, questions that require the intervention of Canvas Support are marked "assumed answered" or "correct answer" (if the answer given by the Community is on the order of "submit a help ticket"). Of course, the members of the Community would appreciate knowing the resolution of your ticket if and when you have received an update and have time to post it.

Today's update from Instructure Support: 

Unfortunately, we do not have any updates on this issue as of yet. It is still an open issue our engineers are aware of, but we currently do not have any updates.

Is it possible that this change is what gave the TA Role the ability to make changes to course settings?
