Hi Edx Studio,

I am creating a test course for Weston High School and am trying to add my department head as a part of my course team. He'd also like to try creating a course. He created an EdxStudio account but when I add his email through the "Add a User to your Course" it says his email cannot be found.

    Hello Mary,

    If you are creating a course on Edge (, you should be able to
    do this, provided your Department Head has registered for an account with
    the platform.

    Do you know whether your Department Head has created a user account on Edge?

    If so, may I ask for the following:

    - a link to the course
    - the email address associated to the Edge account of the user you are
    trying to add to your course team.

    Thank you.

    -- Olga.

    Hi Olga,

    I think that my Department Head Larry Murphy ([email blocked]<mailto:[email blocked]>) registered for account on the platform as he sent me the following screen shot:
    [cid:[email blocked]]

    Here is the link to my course summary page:

    Hello Mary,

    Ah, yes! I just checked and Larry Murphy's account was indeed created on the main edX platform --, but he does not yet have an Edge account.

    Right now the edX and Edge platforms are totally separate and have separate user databases.

    So, in order to author on Edge, Larry Murphy would have to also create a user account on the Edge platform -- on

    He should be able to use the same email/username as for his account with, if he wanted to. You should then be able to add him as a course author on your course.

    Please let me know if that does not work. Thank you.

    -- Olga.
