Guidance: Online Teaching Assistants

This guidance is for supporting students (online teaching assistants or PGR TAs) who will be teaching via Zoom in Canvas.

To allow students to teach for longer than 40 minutes, please ensure that they have been allocated a license. This can be checked by the student under their Zoom profile page - (fig1).

To schedule a teaching session for a teaching assistant, schedule your session via Canvas as usual, ensuring that the student is made an alternative host for the session.

Once this is done, the teaching assistant will then be able to start the meeting and will also be able to record the session. The recordings will be available under the Cloud Recordings tab as usual, but note that any recordings will be associated with account of the original scheduler of the meeting, not the alternative host.
