Adding Participants


Sometimes you will want to manually add other instructors or students to your course. This can be for a variety of reasons:

  • Another faculty member, laboratory technician, or other non-instructional staff member needs to add content to the course for your students or needs to be able to easily email the classlist

  • You want to share resources with another instructor or allow them to copy portions of your course

  • There is a tutor or disability support staff member or student that needs access to your course material

  • You want to give course access to a wait listed student

    • Important Note: If you manually enrol a wait listed student and they do not get a place on the official classlist you must manually remove them from your course

There are two roles you can assign to a participant when you add them to your course: Instructor and Student.

The instructor role will give the user unlimited access to your course and course materials. Instructors can do everything you can do in your course including editing content, exporting the content to another course, and viewing hidden or restricted content.

The student role gives the user limited access to the course and course materials. The student view is limited by restrictions you place on the content and this role cannot make any changes to the course materials within VIULearn.
