You can identify course personnel and assign course roles to them when requesting your course.

-An individual user can be assigned multiple roles in a LON-CAPA course. A user assigned more than one role will select which aprticular  course role he/she wishes to adopt at any time by making a selection on the roles screen, or from a role-switcher select box displayed at the top of most course pages.

-The Course Coordinator role (which is the most powerful role in a course) can assign roles to other users once a course is set-up, and can also assume any role in the course, on an ad hoc basis.

-Currently, additional course coordinators must be added to a course by the domain coordinator (usually someone from the unit responsible for providing LON-CAPA service at your institution), unless included in your course request.
+Additional Coordinators can be only be added to a Course/Community by either the course owner, (i.e., the person who submitted the original request), or by the domain coordinator (usually someone from the unit responsible for providing LON-CAPA service at your institution), once a course is set-up.

You will probably not want to add students to your course from the 'additional personnel' page included in the course request form, as there are more efficient ways to do this once the course has been created.  If your institution has enabled automatic enrollment in official courses, then that would be the simplest way to add students to an 'official' course.  You can also upload a file containing usernames of students - and (optionally) other information - once the course has been created.
