Start of Semester - Enrol Staff

The first step in your new blackboard site is to ensure that all staff who are teaching on it can access the site.

To check which staff are currently enrolled on your site:

Step 1: In the Control Panel select Site Tools, then select Staff Enrolment Tool.

Step 2: A list of all staff members will appear. You can find an explanation of the roles later in this article.

Step 3: To add staff members to your blackboard site, click on Add User.

Step 4: Use the search box to select what you want to search by (last name, first name, email or username) and input a term. Click Go.

Step 5: Tick the box next to the staff member name(s) that you want to enrol. Change the permissions to the appropriate level.

Instructor/Leader - Suitable for most teaching staff
Teaching Assistant/Assistant - Suitable for most admin staff
Course Builder/Organisation Builder - A very limited role with no access to the Grade Centre
Student/Participant - Used to enrol a staff member as if they were a student

Do not enrol staff with teaching responsibilities on a site as a Course Builder. This is a role with limited permissions, and should be used only for people with a very minor role in a site.

Step 6: Click the Enrol button

Step 7: Click OK.

The staff member will be added immediately, and the Role column will reflect their new role.
