Open GAT+ and navigate to Classrooms

The course_id, join code, created and created by cannot be changed and are reflected in the spreadsheet with red color

Remove email@example.com and replace it with firstname.lastname@example.org

Then click on the import button.
Select the spreadsheet you were working on.
The OWNER column in the spreadsheet shows the current owner of the class if you plan on changing the OWNER column to a new owner (teacher’s email address).
The new owner will be automatically added as an additional teacher within the TEACHER column during the import process.
Note: you cannot transfer ownership to an account that is already added as a student in the STUDENT column.
Click Accept and the change of ownership will occur.
Close the tab and you will see the classroom has a new owner, while the original owner, remains in created by field, that cannot be changed.
