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

Adding another professor (co-instructor or teaching assistant (TA)) to your course will allow them to manage your course settings and course content!

To add a professor to your course you simply need to first ensure that you're in the course you'd like to award access to. Then, click on the cog icon in the upper course banner, and select Add Professor.

Into the field provided, type the email address associated with the other professor's Top Hat professor account and then press submit.

You will be alerted that the professor has been successfully added to your course, and when you review your courses in the Top Hat course lobby you'll be able to identify which professors (co-instructors, TAs) have access to each of your Top Hat courses.

Should you need to remove a co-instructor or TA from your Top Hat course for any reason, please simply send an email request to our Support Team at
