I'm trying to add my TA to the course to access. I am not sure what role to assign as I can't find a TA designation. I am not sure the best way to do it.


  • Hi Elana

    Based on your Community profile and that you're wanting to assign your TA to a course, I'm assuming that you are an instructor. This means you will most likely be able to add users and assign roles to them in your course, but you won't be able to create a new role.

    If there is no TA role set up, I recommend contacting your Brightspace Administrator who can either advise you which role has already been set up for TAs, or can create a new role with the relevant permissions which you can use going forward.

    Hopefully this helps!

    Hi @Elana.G.218 and @Richard.H.910 ,

    When creating specialized roles for a TA, we do have documentation on how to do this:

    As @Natasha.B.837 highlighted, this workflow will require an Administrator to create the role and make these changes. We recommend reaching out to your institution's Technical Administrators or IT Support to help you in this! If you are having any issues in navigating to connect with them, please let us know either here or feel welcome to DM me.
