How are staff assigned to modules?
Module leaders are assigned to their modules through the use of data on the student record system. A member of your academic department will be able to update this for you if it is outdated. If you're not sure who can do this for you, please contact your department administrator.
Assigning staff members to modules
When it is necessary to add users in a staff role, you should contact the Digital Learning team on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can add users in an observer role but they have fewer rights than students. Observers can look at the same content as students but cannot participate e.g. by submitting work or posting to discussions.
Removing a member of staff from a module
To remove a member of staff from the module, contact the Digital Learning team on email@example.com.
How to subscribe to a module as a roaming staff member
If you have been given the roaming permission you'll find many areas of the Learning Space will allow you to self-subscribe. To self-subscribe with the roaming permission, you'll either need to be sent a direct link to a module or you must search for it. Use the Learning Space search page here.
How to unsubscribe from a module as a roaming staff member
Unlike regular staff members, roaming staff can subscribe and unsubscribe themselves from modules. Here is how they can do that:
- Select the module page that you would like to remove yourself from
- Click the cog on the right and select "Unsubscribe me from...."
- Confirm that you want to unsubscribe
