Brightspace – Add TAs and Course Builders

In Brightspace, instructors can now add Teaching Assistants (or course builders) directly into their courses, with no wait time.

Step 1: In your course, go to the “Classlist” which you find under “Grades & Feedback.”


Step 2: On the Classlist page, click the “Add Participants” button and select “Add existing users.”

Step 3: Ignore the field labeled “Set all roles to” (this is done lower down). Use the “Search For” box under “Add Existing Users” and enter the name. Click the magnifying glass to conduct the search. The results will appear at the bottom of the page.

Step 4: Select the checkbox for the user you want to enroll and choose “Teaching Assistant” from the Role dropdown on far right. Select the “Enroll Selected Users” button to proceed to the Confirmation of Enrollment screen. If you have no other TAs to enroll, click done. You will be returned to the Classlist where you can view the newly enrolled TA.
