Add an Assistant, Guest Instructor, or Guest Participant

Instructors must manually add these users to their LATTE courses:

  • Teaching or graduate assistants
  • Guest instructors / lecturers
  • Guest students (not enrolled with the Registrar for credit)
  • Guest participants (other guests who can observe but cannot interact in LATTE)
Guest users in LATTE must have a UNet ID to log in. Refer to these instructions for guest users to get a UNet ID.

Academic administrators must contact LATTE Help to be given access to LATTE courses.

Assistant Roles within LATTE Courses 

LATTE has pre-defined roles for assistants or guest instructors/lecturers; each role has unique privileges to access and assign grades and edit course material:

Grading TA - Grading TAs have the most privileges within LATTE. Like an instructor, Grading TAs can create and modify the resources, activities, and files within a course. Grading TAs can grade student assignments and view the gradebook. A Grading TA can see all students' grades within the course.

Decide which role you want your assistant or guest instructor to play in your LATTE course.

Guest Participant Roles within LATTE Courses

Guest Student - Guest students are able to participate in LATTE courses just as regularly enrolled students, and can submit assignments, post to forums, and be graded.

Guest Participant - Guest participants have "view only" privileges within the LATTE course. They may access readings and materials, but cannot submit assignments, post to forums, or be an active participant in the course.  Also, the instructor must change the course settings to "Allow guest participants" in order for the guest participant to enter the LATTE course.

Instructions for Assigning Roles

Step 1: Log into LATTE and select the course you wish to add the assistant or guest user from the list of courses you are teaching.

Note: If you wish add an assistant or guest user to a metacourse (which has the "-ALL" designation on the course number), you must add them to the individual course sections rather than the metacourse. For more information about metacourses and sections, see our documentation on Sharing Content Across Course Sections.

Step 2: Click on the "Enroll Users" link inside the LATTE Course Tools block on the left hand side of the page.

Step 3:  Here you have a list of everyone enrolled in the course and their assigned roles.  Click Enroll Users to assign different roles and add people to the course.

Step 4: Search for the person you want to assign a role to in the search bar at the bottom of the box.  Assign them a role from the drop down menu at the top.  Then click the Enroll button next to the name of the person you want to add.  To complete these changes, click Finish enrolling users.
Step 4: You will see the person is added.  Make sure that they do not have multiple roles assigned as this can cause issues.  You can remove roles by click the red "x" next to the role you want to remove.

Step 5: Return to your course homepage by clicking on the course name near the top of the page.
