As Course Coordinator in a class you can upload course rosters containing lists of students, or alternatively lists of teaching personnel (excluding additional Course Coordinators). Intended roles (instructor, TA, student etc.) for each user can be either read from the file, or a default can be specified.

  7. Once you have the column assignment and defaults set, click the
    Update Users
    button to finish.

  8. If you had checked the "Full Update" box, after processing of the uploaded file, a list of students who are in the course, but who were not listed in the uploaded file will be displayed, and you will have the opportunity to drop some, or all, of those students.
