What is the Group Admin Course Editor Whitelist?
There is a university option that allows group admins to Add/Edit courses for their group. If you don’t want all group admins to have this capability, there is an additional option to “whitelist” group admins so that only specific individuals that have been provided permission by a university admin and add courses. Other group admins that haven’t been “whitelisted” will not be able to add new courses but will be able to edit specific courses if they are assigned to one.
- If you are interested in this additional feature, contact your BlueVolt Account Manager to turn on this option for your university.
How do I add group admins to a Course Editor Whitelist?
- Select Group Course Editor Permissions item under Users tab from the admin navigation bar (Available once the whitelist option is enabled in your university)
- Enter group admin name(s) or select from the list
- Click the Save button
- Notify the group admin(s) of their new course creation capability!
NOTE: Group admins listed here will be able to ADD courses for their group, but they won’t be able to EDIT courses other group admins have added to their group unless given permission for a specific course.
How do I give permission to a group admin to edit a specific course?
While creating or editing a course, you can provide another group admin permission to edit that course by adding their name under the Group Course Editors list located on first step when editing a course.
NOTE: Group admins added here will only be able to edit that course (or other courses they have been added to). They will not be able to create new courses unless specifically added to the Group Course Editor Whitelist.
