In this Moodle administration tutorial, you will learn about how to add a teacher to a Moodle course. You know the ‘Teacher role’ is one of the primary roles in the Moodle Learning Management System (LMS).
Let’s get started with a step-by-step guide.
Step 1: Log in to Moodle dashboard
To add a teacher role to your Moodle course, log in to the Moodle dashboard and go to the Site Administration link. If you are using plain Moodle, you will find the link under the left-side menu.
Dashboard -> Site Administration
Step 2: Go to ‘Manage courses and categories’
To assign a teacher to your Moodle course, go to ‘Manage courses and categories’ under the Courses from the Site Administration. From here, select the course category and the course to which you want to assign a teacher.
Step 3: Click on the Course
Click on the course so that you get another pop-up form. In this form, click on ‘Enrolled users’.
Step 4: Enrol Users from the Participants
When you click on ‘Enrolled users’ you will be taken to course from where you see ‘Enrol users’ button. Note that in this tutorial post, we are using ‘Manual enrolment’ to assign a user to a Moodle course as a Teacher.
Step 5: Provide enrolment options
Provide enrolment options by selecting users, role as a teacher, and so on. In the end, click on ‘Enrol users’ button.
Step 6: Teacher is enrolled
Once you enrol a user as a teacher, you will get a message displayed at the top. You can even cross-check it.
Step 7: Cross-check the role assigned
If you are the teacher who’s manually assigned as a teacher to a Moodle course, open your Moodle dashboard, and there you will see the course you are assigned to.
Thus, you can assign a teacher to a Moodle course. The process is almost similar to any enrolment method.
