Users: Add to Course

AsULearn is connected to Banner, so students are dynamically added and dropped to courses in normal academic terms. You may, as the instructor, manually add users to your course as well. For example, adding a colleague as a secondary teacher, a student who has an incomplete, your Chair or Dean as an observer, etc. To manually add users to your course:

From the main course page, click the 3-line hamburger icon to open the drawer, and select Participants to from the menu.

Open drawer and select Participants


Click the gear icon at the top right of the Participants panel, and select Enrolled users from the menu.

Gear Menu then Enrolled Users

Click the Enroll users button at the top right. The default role to add is Student, but you can select another role if you wish with the Assign roles menu at the top.

Type the name or username (username is what comes before the @ in the email address) of the person you wish to enroll in the search box, and click Search. Usernames are absolutely unique, so that's the most accurate way to search. Note that you may only enroll Appalachian user accounts.

When the user returns in the search window, click the Enroll button to the right of their name. You may repeat these steps (even changing the role for various users) to add multiple users.

When you're done, click the Finish enrolling users button. You'll return to your Enrolled users page and see the added user(s) there with the role you chose for them.

You may wish to notify users that you have enrolled manually, so they'll know!

Available roles:

  • Teacher: Teachers can do anything within a course, including changing the activities and grading students.
  • Secondary Teacher: This role has the same privileges as the Teacher role (adding/editing activities and assigning/viewing student grades). Secondary Teachers may not add other Teachers, however.
  • Non-editing teacher: Non-editing teachers can teach in courses and grade students, but may not alter activities.
  • Content assistant: Content assistants may add, edit, or delete resources, activities, and blocks in the course. They cannot see grades or grade any activities.
  • Student: Students generally have fewer privileges within a course.
  • Observer: Allow users to observe course activities, resources, and content, but not enter text, view grades, or receive email via forum subscriptions.
