GitHub Classroom, Campus Program, GitHub Enterprise Cloud

Hi,
My university has signed the “GitHub Campus Program” -
https://education.github.com/benefit, now, we have greats features for all departaments in the university.

But we has a problem with GitHub Classroom because teachers needs to becomes the owner of the whole organization for use it

Anybody with this problem here?
How use GitHub Classroon using only 1 organization?

Thanks.

Hi Pedro!

Thanks for reaching out to us on our new GitHub Campus Program Community Forum.

Your question is beyond my expertise (I focus on GitHub Campus Program primarily), but please know that I am working on getting an answer for you. Please remain patient, most of the GitHub Education staff is attending our GitHub Summit conference and will be back in next week.

I will @pgonyan ping you soon with an answer.
It is possible the Education Community may answer this for you before I have a chance to reach back out. I will continue to monitor regardless.

Hi @pgonyan! :wave:

Thank you for your patience!
- Currently the only roles available are “Owner” and “Member” at the organization level. At the repository level, you can set more refined permissions. You can read about them here: https://help.github.com/en/articles/repository-permission-levels-for-an-organization
- You can also add more organizations to your account if you’d prefer. You can find instructions for doing so here: https://help.github.com/en/articles/adding-organizations-to-your-enterprise-account

I hope this helps
Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi @michelletracy,

I’ve been struggling to understand this also - organisation permissions really don’t scale out in a usable way to Higher-Education level numbers.

The campus program has given us a benefit to a single organisation only, administered through https://enterprise.github.com/dashboard. The enterprise account management features are relatively new I believe, and I don’t seem to have any access to https://github.com/enterprises/xxx. Is there a pathway to migrate into an “enterprise account” attached to the campus program instead of a single organisation?

There is still a question of how this will interact with github classroom - one step at a time :slight_smile:

Regards,
Ben.

Apologizes for the delayed response!

I’m going to work to address each of your concerns

The campus program has given us a benefit to a single organisation only, administered through https://enterprise.github.com/dashboard.

Do you have other Organizations to add? If so, Jen and I can definitely help you add additional Organizations, they will be included with your Enterprise and Cloud licenses. Email us directly at schools@github.com with your Organization URL’s and we’ll take care of this.

The enterprise account management features are relatively new I believe, and I don’t seem to have any access to https://github.com/enterprises/xxx.

  • Using GitHub Enterprise Server? You can find instructions for downloading your license in our Enterprise Help Documents
  • Using GitHub Enterprise Cloud? Your license was applied to the Organization URL you provided

Does this help you access your Enterprise account? If not, please email us at schools@github.com so we can escalate your problem.

@jen-k will have to help here.

@jen-k and I are happy to help answer any questions.

Please let me know if this didn’t help answer your questions.

This help article about enterprise accounts might help as well.

Hello everyone ,
I’m looking for ways to integrate use of GitHub in the classroom to introduce my juniors and classmates in college to source code management and working as a team earlier in the curriculum. What should i do to get Github resources ?

Hey @benhatton-unsw-edu-au! Questions about enterprise accounts should go to schools@github.com - we’ll message you privately about yours.

Looks like our organisation has been attached to an enterprise overnight - Thanks @jen-k and @michelletracy. Now to work out what changes with regard to SAML/SCIM user provisioning, and how to work github classroom into the process…
