In July 2020, the Author view was made part of the Administrator view, and no longer appears as a standalone view option. Admins with authoring permissions now select the Administrator view > Courses screen. From here they can build and edit courses and review learner reports.
In order to add authors to a course, you must:
- Invite or enroll the individual to your site.
- Make the user an author using the Administrator view if they don't already have the author role.
