Adding a Teaching Assistant in D2L

Teaching assistants in D2L have the same permissions as instructors. There are a few other things to also keep in mind about teaching assistants:

  • Instructors can add a teaching assistant to their class, but they cannot remove one. To remove a teaching assistant, complete the Remove User request form.
  • The CDM Grader role is identical to Teaching Assistant, but is invisible to students and instructors in the classlist.
  • Contact fits@depaul.edu for assistance finding someone in D2L who you want to add to your course as a teaching assistant.
