There are a variety of roles available for use within Course Site. The roles most commonly assigned to individuals by instructors in courses include: TA (teaching assistants), Grader, and Visitor. For a quick overview and easy-to-understand chart showing the available roles and their permissions, please see Course Site Roles and Permissions.
Please note: All academic Course Site courses are fed faculty and student enrollment information from Banner as soon as the registration/assignment has been entered into Banner.
However, here's what to do if you are an instructor and a student appears on your course roster but does not appear in your Course Site course.
To add and user and assign them a role (e.g. TA, Grader, Visitor) in your course, first log into Course Site and navigate to the course in which you want to enroll them.
On the Enrolled Users page that loads, click the Enroll users button (typically at the top right or bottom right of the page).
|This page will also display other potentially useful information about enrolled users. The Enrollment methods column will show the method via which each user is enrolled (manual, Banner, Course meta link, etc.)|
The Enroll users pop-up window will appear (pictured below). Use the Assign roles drop-down menu to choose the correct role.
|You will only see roles for which you have permission to grant. If you do not select a role, the person will simply be enrolled in the course and show up in the list of users but unable to interact with the course in any capacity due to the lack of assigned role.|
