I would like to let my writing fellow access a course page to make announcements and list grades. How do I do that?
I don't really know of a way to add someone just to a page in your course. You'll want to add them to the course itself and there are a few different roles you can consider. How do I add users to a course?
Teacher - This will give the same permissions as you in the course
TA - Almost the same permissions as Teacher including the ability to view and post grades
Designer - This role lets the person add, edit and delete content like the other two role above, but does NOT give access to student data such as grades.
Based on your post I'm guessing you'll want to use the Teacher or TA role.
Thanks for your follow up, Rick. As a writing fellow, he does not appear to have the right to access the course, so we'll take care of all student communication in regular meetings.
Thanks for your service,
