To use the Education Extension on Wikipedia, I used to have user rights that designated me as a Course instructor. Those have been removed. Can you explain why?

Wiki Ed once supported instructors who had a course page on the Education Extension on Wikipedia. Since we developed our own external system for tracking student work, we no longer monitor it and review courses coming in through the extension.

In order to avoid confusion, Wiki Ed removed the course instructor rights for instructors whom we granted them to (you should have been notified on your Wikipedia talk page if you’re in this group). You will not need it with the Dashboard, which is where you will create course pages if you wish to be supported by Wiki Ed's staff. If you’d like to request the user right again, you can do so on the Education Noticeboard.
