Configure Teacher Roles in Eduframe

In Eduframe, it is possible to give teachers a specific role in a course, meeting (template) or subevent. This makes it possible to communicate to teachers what is expected of them.

Click on the + Add Role button
Give the new role a name and Save the new role

The new teacher role will appear at contacts in Eduframe (relations) or when you are adding teacher to a planned course or meeting. 
 

Add teachers in a specific role to a course in Eduframe

  • Go to Courses 
  • Select a course and go to the Teachers tab
  • Add a teacher to the course by clicking on + Add Teacher
  • Select the teacher and specify the correct role, click on save
  • Now the teacher is added to the course within a specific role.
    *Optional: If Eduframe is connected to Canvas the teacher will be synced to the Canvas course in the teacher role


Add teachers in a specific role to a meeting in Eduframe

  • Select a course and go to the Meetings tab
  • Click on an existing meeting (or create one)
  • Select a teacher in the Plan teacher select field
  • Change the role if necessary 
  • Save the meeting

    *Optional: If Eduframe is connected to Canvas the meetings and roles will be synced to the Canvas course. 
  • By saving the meeting, the teacher will automatically be added to the Teachers tab where it you can see that the teacher is planned on 1 or more meetings
Note: It is also possible to add the teacher in a specific role to sub events or meeting templates.



*Configure Roles in Canvas

As an admin go to the Permissions page of your root account in Canvas. Check the permissions of the standard Course roles or create a new custom role by clicking on 'Add role'. 
For more information about adding a new role in Canvas check this article.


*Connect Roles Eduframe to Canvas

You can connect the roles from Eduframe to Canvas under Plugins. 


If you want to know more about the connection, click on the link.


Note: When you don't fill in a 'Canvas role', the teacher will not be synced to the Canvas course and therefore won't have access. However, the teacher role still can be used within Eduframe to communicate the role of the teacher on a meeting.
Note: When you use a standard teacher role it's not case sensitive. If you create your own custom role it is case sensitive.
