You can designate a team of people to help you run your course. Two roles are available to give your administrative team members access to different options for working with students, grades, and other members of the staff.
You can assign these privileged roles when you work in either the LMS or in Studio, and the users who have these roles can work on your course in both the LMS and Studio. For more information on setting up a team in Studio, see Add Course Team Members.
The LMS “Course Staff” role is the same as the Studio “Staff” role, and the LMS “Instructors” role is the same as the Studio “Admin” role.
