Sharing your course content

Online Learning has created a new role in D2L that will allow Instructors to add other instructors into their course so that they can view course content and copy the content into their own courses. The role is called Instructor Copy Course Content.

The new role does not let instructors change your course content or view student data.

When the person is added to the course, their name will show up in the classlist. No role will be displayed to avoid confusing students. This will allow for easy removal from the course once they no longer need access to the course.
