Changing the Role of a User
How to set a colleague as Instructor on your course
You can change the role of any user who is enrolled on your Blackboard course. The
most common reason for doing this is to set a member of staff as Instructor.
Please note that the user must already have been added to the course before you can
do this – see the separate user guide Adding course members.
Note also that in Blackboard 9.1 you can add a user to a course, and choose their role,
at the same time.
Go to Control Panel > Users and Groups > Users
Find the user whose role you wish to change.
Click on the down-arrows next to the user’s
name, and select Change User’s Role in
Course
Select the new role for the user.
