Faculty members can be assigned a few different roles in LMS. If you have more than one role on the LMS platform, you may need to switch between your assigned roles.
To switch roles, find your profile icon in the upper-right hand corner of your classroom and select the drop-down list under your name. All the roles assigned to your account will be listed there. Select the desired role.
After making a selection, you will be prompted with a message asking, “Do you really want to change your role?” Select Yes to proceed.
The different roles allow you to access different areas of the LMS platform. The possible roles for faculty are as follows:
- The GCU Student role is used when you need to access your faculty training courses.
- The GCU Instructor role is used by faculty teaching online courses. If you are an instructor with courses in either lms-ugrad.gcu.edu or lms-grad.gcu.edu, then ensure that the GCU Instructor role is selected when navigating your online classrooms.
- The Traditional Instructor role is for faculty teaching traditional courses on campus. If you are an instructor in the lms-trad.gcu.edu platform, then ensure that you have the Traditional Instructor role selected when navigating your traditional (ON-GROUND) courses.
- The Instructional Assistant role is used by IAs and substitute instructors. If you are subbing for another instructor, you will need to switch into this role. Otherwise the class will not appear within your list of available courses.
