How to add LearnPress instructor to a course

In this article, we will learn about how Instructor feature works in Edubin, what Instructors can do, how to assign a course to an instructor, how to promote someone into instructor and all about instructors.

How to assign someone to be an instructor?

There are many ways you can promote other people to be instructors. You can manually set any user to be an instructor; you can let your users register as instructor and you will approve or you can even let everybody register as an instructor from the beginning.

Method 1: Manually set someone to be instructor

In order to do this, please go to your WP-Admin > Users > Search for the user and Edit > In the Edit User window, under the Role drop-down field, choose Instructor > Save.
After that, the user’s role will be changed to Instructor and your instructor will be able to add courses.

Method 2: You can let your users register as instructor and wait for your approval

Currently, on our demo for Edubin, we are using this function. You can see the demo here.

There will be a page where your users can go to and sign up to be instructors, and after that, there will be a notification email sent to your email account requesting instructor role. There will also be a quick link in the email for you to accept or deny instructor request.

If accepted, the user’s role will immediately become an instructor and have access to LearnPress course creation page.

The default page for Become An Instructor page is LP Become A Teacher. You can access it with the url Where is your domain. You can change it in LearnPress settings: Go to WP-Admin > LearnPress > Settings > Pages > Become a teacher

Method 3: Let everybody register and become instructor right from the beginning

If you choose to use this method, everybody can be instructor just like the way Udemy works. Here’s the workflow: Upon registration, there will be a check box asking if the user also wants to be an instructor. If yes, the user will immediately become an instructor after registration finish.
