We are new to using the observer role. We have assigned it to our academic advisers and associated their advisees to them. I know that faculty have to allow observer access to the course and further have to allow access to specific items on the course menu. The faculty senate has agreed on what items will be accessible in all courses. Now I'd like to be able to make those items available to observers without asking faculty to go into each individual course and change the settings. There's no way it will be done correctly by all 85 faculty members!
Is there a way that I can set these observer course access permissions globally?
