I provide technical assistance for a course in which a person with the TA role has been added. The course includes an unpublished module with unpublished pages containing homework keys.


According to to this document in the Canvas guides What is the Teacher Assistant role?

Teacher Assistants can:


  • Manage assignments, quizzes, course files and pages, and all other course content


However, in this course, when the TA clicks an unpublished page to view it, he gets the message "This file is currently locked." The instructor temporarily solved the problem by publishing the page, but we thought a TA could view unpublished pages.
