January 30, 2017 Kelly Basara

Once students have been created (or imported) within the portal, they will be listed under the Students sub-tab, whether in the Course directly or when accessing the Users tab. All pertinent information is listed for each student, such as their name, student ID, status, date invited, and last login date. 

Clicking the expand icon  will allow you to add more columns to the grid if there are any not being displayed.


Managing Students within a Course

Whether you are a Institution or Department Administrator, or just simply a Course Admin (also known as an Instructor), you can manage student accounts within your Courses.

1. Select your Course from the My Courses page.

2. Choose the Students sub-tab.
