How to view video closed captions and transcripts

A co-teacher is someone that can be added to a classroom to help coordinate class activities. 

Co-teachers can be added via single class or bulk action. Once you initiate the single class or bulk action, the Add co-teachers to stepper is the same. If you are an administrator who wants to join the class as a co-teacher or student, see Joining a class as a co-teacher or student.

Note: Co-teachers cannot be edited. To change a co-teacher, first remove the co-teacher and add a new co-teacher.
