How To Add a Secondary Instructor

In most cases, instructors should create their own accounts in the NROC Course Manager, so they have ownership of their login and are empowered to manage their own accounts. 

However, since automated account creation only takes place when the primary instructor is registering a class in the Course Manager for the first time, there are cases where the administrator may need to create an instructor account manually. 

For example, you may have an adjunct or assistant who has never been a primary instructor in another class and thus has never been through the registration process. If the instructor has never registered a class of their own, then they have no way to create their own account.

In this case, the administrator will have to create the secondary instructor's account in the Course Manager, and provide the instructor with their login credentials.

There are two pathways to add a secondary instructor:

In either case, once the instructor account is created, they can be added to other classes as a primary or secondary instructor, by the administrator or by other instructors. Their name will appear in all dropdown lists of instructors. The primary/secondary role differentiation is on a per-class basis, not a per-user basis.

Add the instructor directly to a class via the Class Settings tab. 

  1. Log into the NROC Course Manager at https://cm.nroc.org with your institution's admin username and password.
  2. Go to the "Class Settings" tab.
  3. Select the target class from the dropdown menu. The page will automatically refresh to show that class' settings page.

  6. When the screen refreshes, you will see a confirmation message in red, and you will see the instructor's name added as a secondary instructor. There is a "Remove" button next to the name if you need to remove the instructor from this class. This will not delete the instructor's account.

  7. Now that this instructor account exists, it can be added to other classes.

Create the instructor account, then add the instructor to any classes they are teaching.

  1. Log into the NROC Course Manager at https://cm.nroc.org with your institution's admin username and password.
  2. Go to the "Instructors" tab.
  3. Click on "Add New Instructor".
