Are you unable to add or edit content in your Semester 1 course? Can’t see the Import course content button? If so, check your role in the course. Click on People in the course navigation menu and search for your name.

To add, edit or delete content in the course, you will need to be assigned as one of the following roles:

  • Teacher
  • Teacher Support
  • Course Director
  • Course Designer

If you are a Course Access Coordinator, you can add additional roles for yourself in the course. If you are not a Course Access Coordinator and you wish to have different or additional roles, contact the Course Access Coordinator of the course, or the relevant Course Access Authoriser.
