After courses have been created, school administrators can enroll students using the Module Setup. This feature also allows instructors to be added to the course if they are flagged as a course admin.
In order to enroll users you'll need the Join Code for the course. If you've created your courses using the Module Setup, the join code will be listed in the addCode column in the CSV that was returned with your upload results.
If you are an admin or owner of the course you can also find the Join Code by locating the course on the home page of your CourseKey account.
Creating the CSV File
The CSV file has 3 required fields for each user that you want to enroll.
|Email address of user (must match an existing CourseKey account).||firstname.lastname@example.org|
|course||Join code of the course.||ck8502p|
|isAdmin||Flag to designate role of user in course. If user is a student, enter 0. If user is a course admin, enter 1.||0|
At the bottom of this article are two attachments. The Enroll Users Template CSV file includes the header row with all of the required fields. Each user that you want to add to a course should be listed on an individual row underneath. The Enroll Users Example CSV file is also available to be used as a reference when creating your file.
You must have admin permissions in order to upload the CSV file to enroll users. When you've finished creating your file, log in to your account and click Admin Home > Module Setup > Enroll Users.
Allow Code / Allow Technology
In a course roster each student has individual settings on what method they can use to check in/out for attendance. These settings are selected before uploading your CSV file to apply to all students you are enrolling. Selecting Yes for Allow Technology will allow the student to check in using the attendance technology selected for the course: GPS, Sound, or QR Code. In the Allow Code drop-down you can designate whether or not the students should be allowed to check in using an alphanumeric code.
An additional capability of this feature is the ability to drop students from courses in bulk. Selecting Yes from the drop-down will remove the students and instructors from the corresponding courses if they are already enrolled. However, in most cases, the desired action is to enroll the students in the course. To enroll the students or instructors in the courses listed on the CSV select No from the drop-down.
After selecting the options you can click the button to Attach File, or drag and drop your file for upload. When your file is selected, click Upload File.
When your file has finished processing the results of the upload will be displayed including how many users were successfully enrolled, or if any errors occurred.
