Below is an explanation of the various roles within a course  Course roles can be changed from the Roster within a course.  See Bb Ultra Roster.

Instructor: Creates course content and facilitates course interactions. Instructors can access private courses and open a course when it's ready for students.

Primary Instructor: If a course has multiple instructors, any of them can be designated the primary instructor from the roster. Open an instructor's Member Information panel and select the Primary instructor option. The primary instructor is listed first in the roster. If multiple primary instructors exist, they're listed alphabetically before other instructors in the roster.

Teaching Assistant: Creates course content, facilitates course interactions, and has access to private courses, same as instructors. Role limitations are set by your institution. Teaching assistants can't delete an instructor from a course.
