This article is for teachers.
A teacher can invite you to teach their class as a co-teacher. As a co-teacher, you can perform most teacher tasks after you join. However, primary teachers and co-teachers have different permissions in Classroom.
What can I do as a co-teacher?
As a co-teacher, you can do the same tasks as the primary teacher, except you can't delete a class, remove the primary teacher, or mute another teacher in the class.
If you’re having trouble being added to a class, contact your admin. If you’re not in the same domain, they might need to update your domain's class membership settings.
Tip: You can quickly accept or decline the invitation to co-teach by clicking the link in the email notification.
To respond from Classroom:
- On the class card, click Accept or Decline.
Note: If you're a student in the class, clicking Decline doesn't remove you from the class.
On the class card, click Open folder .
In the top-left corner, click Newselect an option:
To add a folder to the class Drive for your files, select Folder.
To upload an existing file or folder, select File upload or Folder upload.
If you leave a class you co-teach, you can't open it again unless you're re-invited or enrolled as a student in the class. If you own the class Drive folder, you need to make another teacher in the class the folder’s owner before you leave the class. For details, see Make someone else the owner of your file.
