I’m a university professor using GitHub classroom for one of my courses (I have a single organization) and would like to expand it (we’re using the same organization for multiple groups of the same course and it’s pretty messy, not to mention getting all the email notifications to my account).
The apparent way to make this scale well is to transition to GitHub Campus. However, there’s almost 0 chance my university will name an administrator who will be the teacher-trainer. We’re a computer science (software engineering) department and the IT admins are way too busy configuring the techs for lab spaces for other courses. Moving something to the cloud is about not having to administrate it. No professor would dare claim she was the teacher-trainer because that is just outside the scope of responsibilities (we must prioritize research over teaching). We have some IT support for courses, but they are Moodle (LMS) support people, and I fear supporting GitHub training would not work in their job description.
Funding licenses would not be an issue. But I’m having trouble finding a way to move us into the Campus Program because of the teacher-trainer hurdle. Have I misunderstood the obligation?
