Our college is hiring a contractor to audit some of our online courses. They will only need access to specified courses that I want to manually add the person to. They will need to see everything that an instructor can see but without edit access. I've been trying to play around with the different roles and the Teaching Assistant course role is almost perfect for what I'm wanting but the student's can see that person when they create a new course message which I don't like. The Teaching Assistant role also receives notification emails on the course and I don't want that either.
Has anyone dealt with this before? What roles did you use or tweak?
