Adding team members (course authors) to your Open edX course

Course Team Members are also known as staff and co-authors. They have the ability to edit courses and add content. Here's how to add them to your course.

From Studio, select Course Team from the Settings drop down menu. 

Next, click the green button that says + New Team Member 

Then, just add your new team member's email address, and click Add User. It is important to note that this user must already be registered.  If you are confused about what a "Registered User" is, be sure to check out the article we have explaining it and how to add them.

NOTE: Staff cannot edit the Course Team, only admins have this capability. However, as seen above, admins can easily click that blue Add Admin Access button and make any staff member an admin, granting them full access to change the Course Team.
