An instructor can add staff members (with an m-number or g-number)  to the course and give them a teaching role: instructor, assistant instructor, course builder and grader. 

You can also add staff members as a Dummy Student to your course. This can be useful in case you want to test out functionalities from a student perspective. Take note: you cannot change or delete the role afterwards. Please contact your faculty LMS coordinator for this.

Students cannot be enrolled in a teaching role with their s-number.
