How do I change participant roles within a site?

Anyone in the Instructor or Secondary Instructor role in a course site, or the Owner or Administrator role in a collaboration site, can change the roles of other participants in the site.

Tip: An instructor may give a teaching assistant additional permissions in their site by changing the teaching assistant's role from Teaching Assistant to Secondary Instructor.
