4. Once your co-teacher enters their name and clicks "Join Lesson," they will be added to the lesson as a co-teacher.

How to promote a lesson participant to Co-Teacher

1. After your co-teacher has joined the lesson as a student (here's how), go to your Participants List by clicking on the person icon in the bottom left corner, and hover over your co-teacher's name, then click the "More" dropdown menu, then select "Make Co-Teacher."

2. Click "Yes" to confirm that you would like to promote this participant to Co-Teacher. Your Co-Teacher will then receive a notification on their device that they have been made a Co-Teacher.
