Cohort Setup: Admins

This article explains the different admin roles in a cohort and the permissions granted to each admin.

What is a cohort admin?

In each cohort, there are several people that need permissions above those of the learners, including but not limited to the Moderator and the Sponsor. Each type of admin may need a slightly different set of permissions based on their role in the learning experience, so the platform offers several admin role options that can be selected when assigning an admin to a cohort.

How to add an admin

  1. To begin, navigate to the Admin page.
  2. Type in the email address or name of the admin you’d like to add and select them when they appear.
  3. Next, from the dropdown, select the admin role for the admin. Note: As you hover over each admin role, a popup will appear showing the permissions granted for that admin role.
  4. The admin roles and their respective permissions include the following:
