I have been requested by a professor to add a user to their class who is basically a class auditor - I was able to create a customized course role for this, allowing the user the ability to see and access everything a student can, without the permissions to participate in graded assignments.
However, we have now been asked to allow that student to be able to submit assignments via Blackboard. When i investigated this, i observed that no matter the settings I apply in Permissions, I can't get a user in a customized course role to appear on a course's gradebook, or provide the user the ability to participate in assignments/assessments.
If i add the user to the course as a regular "student" role, our SIS will kick them out during the integrations, as they are not officially enrolled in the course.
I would greatly appreciate any ideas you may have about incorporating this "unenrolled" student. Thank you in advance!
