A course coordinator can add TAs, instructors, guests, etc., to the course. There is also the option to create a new role with customized privileges; see how to create a custom role in Help.

To add a user to your course:

  1. Select Manage course users on the Main Menu.

  2. On the User Management screen, select Add/Modify a Course User.

  3. You can use the Search for a user and modify/add user information or roles section to search for a user by username, or last name, in a specific LON-CAPA domain, or in an institutional directory, if the domain has access to an institutional directory search service. You can also click the Select User link and a window will open with a list of all the users in the course.

    Note: If you know the exact username, you can either use a "username is ..." search in the search section, or type the username in the textbox in the Enroll one student section.
