What is the Access Coordinator?

    What is an Access Coordinator and who should take on the role?
    The Access Coordinator is a key role for your school's My Rising Stars account. This person will keep your data in My Rising Stars secure by approving all new teacher accounts and deleting those no longer in use. The first time someone at your school subscribes to a My Rising Stars product, they'll be asked to nominate an Access Coordinator.

    We recommend that you nominate your data manager or network administrator as they're best placed for managing user data at a school level. However, you can nominate anyone at your school and change your nominated Access Coordinator at any time.
    If you want to find out who your Access Coordinator is, you can do this when you're logged into your subscription products. Simply click on the star in the top right hand corner and it will provide you with the details of your Access Coordinator.
    What is the Access Coordinator responsible for?
    Your Access Coordinator is responsible for keeping all your data secure by approving new teacher accounts in Dynamic Learning, and removing any accounts no longer in use.
    The Access Coordinator is also able to edit Teacher Accounts to Teacher Administrator Accounts. For guidance on how to do this, please go here. If you're looking for more information on our account types and their permissions, please go here
    How does the Access Coordinator approve (or reject) new teacher accounts?
    As the institution’s Access Coordinator, only you can authorise new teacher user accounts as part of the verification process. This helps you to protect all your data. Only authorised teachers can give students access to titles.

    If there are teacher accounts waiting to be approved, then a pop-up dialog box will appear when you log into My Rising Stars, inviting you to accept or reject new teacher accounts.

    How do I transfer the Access Coordinator role?
    The existing Access Coordinator is able to reassign the role to another account within your school.
    If you're the existing Access Coordinator:
    • Go to the 'Admin Hub’
    • Select the teacher's tab, and click on the user you wish to nominate, or add them to the system using the 'add teacher' button
    • Click 'view teacher' and select ‘Access Coordinator’ in the Role dropdown. The nominated user will be sent an email asking them to confirm their acceptance of the role. The role will not be transferred until this is accepted by the nominee.
