The Users page lists all enrolled users in a course and allows you to manage their settings. In many cases, your institution handles course enrollments for registered students and manages their accounts. If your institution allows it and gives you the appropriate permissions, you can add or delete users as well as change passwords, roles, profile information, and availability in your course.
Access the Users page from the Control Panel in the Users and Groups section.
You can enroll users in three ways. These options are available from the Enroll User drop-down menu or the Batch Enroll function on the action bar.
Your institution manages the ability of instructors to create new users. If you are unable to create users, contact your institution for more information.
For institutions with multiple information systems, creating users may occur in a different information system accessed by a link at the top of this page.
Information about users is stored in a user profile. Your institution determines which of the fields of data in the user profile appear to users and which are editable by users.
Located Users: The results of a search will display up to 25 names on a page. Searches that result in more than 25 users will display users on multiple pages. You cannot enroll multiple users who appear on different pages. Instead, select users to enroll from a single page and click Submit. Redo the search to select additional users to enroll.
Availability: Users who have been made Unavailable by your institution cannot be enrolled in a course. Users who have been enrolled in a course but made Unavailable by you will not see your course in My Courses and do not have access to your course. You need to set the course to Available for these users so they can see they are enrolled in your course.
Batch Enroll Users adds multiple users to your course and assigns them a course role. Users that do not exist in the system will be created in the system and added to your course. User data is defined in a batch file that must be created outside the system. Common creation tools are text editors and Microsoft Excel.
Your institution manages the ability of instructors to batch enroll users. If you are unable to batch enroll users, contact your institution for more information.
Batch files are TXT files that can hold large quantities of information to upload to the system. Each batch utility contains specific instructions on creating the batch file. The following batch file standards are universal.
Microsoft Excel versions 2003 and later automatically insert double quotes in every field if the worksheet is saved as a CSV file.
Removing users from your course is final and irreversible. All of the information associated with the users, such as Grade Center information, assessment and assignment information, and course statistics are also deleted. Discussion board posts, received messages, and email are not deleted. Deleted users and their corresponding information cannot be restored to your course. However, you can re-enroll a deleted user into your course without any associated data.
Alternatively, you can delete users one at a time by using the option in each user's contextual menu.
The following functions are accessed in a user's contextual menu. The options include:
