Add Users to Your Course

This article covers how to add users to your course. Note that your students will automatically be enrolled in your course based on their registration status at UP. However, in some cases, it will be necessary to enroll someone manually, for instance, someone who is auditing the course or is acting as a teaching assistant or co-teacher.

Step 1

Navigate to the course you want to add a user to. From the Navigation menu, click Participants.
