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.

create a user account on the Edge platform -- on https://edge.edx.org/
He should be able to use the same email/username as for his
account with edx.org, 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.
