How can we improve Leganto?

Add instructors automatically using role in LTI launch request

A course can have a number of instructors teaching on it, and it might be difficult to keep the details of the instructors of courses and owners of reading lists up to date in Alma.

Rather than having to update these details manually, or pre-load them using the Course loading integration profile, I suggest that there is an option for the LTI Integration profile to automatically assign an instructor of a course and owner of the associated reading lists, if the user in the LTI launch request has a role of "instructor."

Even better if the Alma "Instructor" role could be added automatically too.

        Ex Libris have pointed out that if an instructor enters a course for the first time and there are no reading lists associated to the course he is prompt to create a reading list to that course (associated to that course) and he automatically becomes the owner of the list since he created it.

        But I don't think the owners of the lists should be responsible for managing other owners.
