Professor: Adding a Co-Instructor or Teaching Assistant to a Course (Old Top Hat)

If you have a co-instructor or teaching assistant (TA) that you’d like to give access to your Top Hat course with administrative privileges, simply:

  1. have the co-instructor or TA create a professor’s Top Hat account: Top Hat
  2. send an email to and include the following information:
  • your name
  • the join codes of the courses you would like to have the co-instructor/TA added to
  • your co-instructor/TA’s name
  • your co-instructor/TA’s Top Hat professor account username

Once we receive this information we will then be able to link everything together for shared access to your Top Hat course!

    Are there plans to make this process easier? I should be able to invite the TA/co-instructor and mark them as having full access. Most LMS's have such functionality.
