You might wish to add users to your Community or Cougar Courses course container. For Cougar Courses, you might need to add a TA or, in rare cases, a student. By default students are automatically added to the course container within 24 hours of them officially enrolling in the course in MyCSUSM. In most cases this timeline is sufficient; however, in certain cases you might want a student to get immediate access to course resources and activities. In these cases you can manually add the student to your course container. Keep in mind access to the course container does not mean they are officially enrolled in the course. If you manually add a student and they later drop the course or never officially enroll, they must be removed manually. You might also want to add another faculty member to your course to let them see how you have your course setup. If you wish for them to just see your content you can add them as a Student or, if the course is hidden, as Student with Access to Hidden Course. If you want them to be able to import your content into their course, you can add them as a Facilitator without Gradebook Access. Please note that due to privacy requirements, you do not have the ability to add a user as an Instructor.
For Community, there are two ways to add users. First, you can manually add them through the steps below. Or, you can set up self-enrollment, and the users can enroll themselves in your container. For more information, please see our help guide on Self-Enrollment in Community.
You might need to change the role of a user who is already enrolled in your Cougar Courses or Community container. For example, in Cougar Courses a student might need access to a hidden course in order to finish an incomplete. To give them access you would need to change their role.
