How do I change a user from a student to an instructor? I have a teacher that was initially marked as a student.
Hi MattIf you're an admin then you should be able to change any user's role. Is it one specific course where you're not able to make the change? Or are you not seeing the Edit Role option in any courses? If it's not working as expected then I recommend opening a support call with Instructure (via the help menu on the left in Canvas) so they can check if there's anything unusual about the course or user account you're dealing with.
If you yourself are a teacher on the course, you should be able to change the role of other users on the course by going to the People page and using the Edit Role option. See this page for details: How do I edit user roles in a course?
If you don't see that option in your course then it could be that your institution has put restrictions on the actions that course teachers can carry out. If that's the case, contact your local Canvas administrator and ask them to make the change for you.
I am the Canvas Admin here. Any help from that perspective.
