Changing my role

Jump to solution

I enrolled with Canvas as a teacher. I have set up a new course that has multiple teachers. I am the designer, but there is no designer option. However, I can change the role of everyone else in the course to teacher, observer, student, or designer. Why are my role options limited?

Hi @cguro 

Canvas roles, for the most part, are set at the course level. Canvas comes with a default set of roles that can be assigned to users in a course. However, your school's Canvas Admin also has the ability to create custom roles. "Designer" is not a default role. You will need to request that role be created by your Canvas Admin with an appropriate level of permissions.

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley
