Course Management FAQs | Instructional and Information Technology Services (IITS) | CSUSM

To add a TA or colleague, please see our help guide on how to add users. The role you choose for them depends on what you would like them to be able to access. An official
TA can be given the role Facilitator with Gradebook Access to allow them editing access
as well as grading access. If you want your colleague to be able to import your content
into their course, you will choose the role Facilitator without Gradebook Access (this
gives them editing ability and the ability to import). If you only want them to be
able to view your course, choose the role Student.

We caution against manually adding students. Manually adding a student to a course
in Cougar Courses does not represent official enrollment. To be officially enrolled
in a course they must be enrolled and on the roster in MyCSUSM. Once they are officially
on the roster in MyCSUSM, they will automatically be added to the course in Cougar
Courses within 24 hours. If you want them to have access to the course earlier than
the 24 hours you can manually add them (see the help guide in the paragraph above),
but keep in mind if they end up not taking the course or dropping the course you will
need to manually remove them (see question below).
