Adding people to your course:

Instructors are able to manually add people to their course.

  1. Navigate to the appropriate course and in the Course Menu, click People.
  2. Click on the + People button
  3. Enter their UNH user name ID or UNH student ID .
  4. If you are adding multiple people, separate each user by a comma.
  5. Select the Role (TA, Student, Instructor, etc) and course section to which the person should be assigned. (You can also select the option for that person to interact with their course section only)
  6. Select Next. You should see the name of that person appear.
  7. Select Add User. The user's email address will appear.
  8. Select Done. An email is sent to the person inviting them to join the course.

Do NOT enter the user's email address as Canvas needs to locate the person using the student's unique identifier. The student's default myCourses email address will automatically be added to the course.

The user will be sent an email, inviting them to join the course. The user will also see the invitation to the course in their myCourses Dashboard. You will see a status of Pending in the People area of the course which indicates the user has not accepted the invitation and joined the course. When the user does join the course the Pending message will disappear and a date and time will appear in the "Last Activity" column.
