New Staff Roles tool is now available

The Staff Roles tool is now available in the LMS. Read on to learn more about its benefits and how to use it.

The team at Learning Environments has developed the Staff Roles tool to provide staff with greater visibility and control over the staff members enrolled in their Subjects and Communities, and to ensure the data integrity of Subject Coordinators listed in StudentOne.

Key features of the tool

  • Staff can now search for users based on their full name or username.
  • The permissions available to staff with the Instructor role have been elevated to match the Subject Coordinator role.
  • All staff can easily view the list of staff in the subject in the one page.
  • When staff are added to a Subject or Community, they are automatically added and do not have to accept an invitation.

Important notes

If you are a Subject Coordinator and you are not identified as such in the LMS, please contact your local Faculty LMS Representative or Academic Support Officer to initiate these changes in StudentOne.

The Staff Roles link is automatically available in the subject navigation menu for all Subjects and Communities and does not need to be enabled.

Staff will no longer add or manage staff enrolments from the People area in Canvas.

More information

Please refer to the release notes for more information and the Staff roles and permissions user guide about the tool including how to add, edit or remove staff, and a comparison of all staff roles.
