How do I add existing users to a course? I can create new users, but there's no "find users" for existing users.
And this is for a "Classic" course, not "Ultra".
We've just pushed an update to make this easier. There are two main ways:
1) Go to Users > Invite Users and paste in the email address of the users you want to send the invite to. You can enter as many as you like in one go separated by a comma.
2) Simply copy the sharable link you can see in the image above and share it with your students through whatever is the best mechanism for you.
Thanks, but it also then seems I cannot use an email address as a new account -- which is what you can do when you create an account. It's also not figuring out I had an account already... So perhaps you need to allow the Enrollment page to link/specify an existing account?
I'm not completely sure I understand the comment about not being able to use an email address as a new account.
If you invite someone using their email address they are sent an email with a link in it. The email looks like this:
When I click the Enroll Now button I am taken to a page where I can either register or sign in with an existing account. If I sign in with an existing account I am enrolled onto the course I was sent the invite for.
It should take you straight into the course you were just invited to on sign-in.
Does this help answer your question?
Thanks, I'll double check. I might have missed the Sign in in the upper right for an existing account!
No problem - let us know how you get on. I have realised that there is a small gotcha by the way. If I test the process by inviting myself, then click the link in the student invite email and attempt to complete the sign-in process without first logging out of the instructor session in my browser the system gets confused as it already has a current session. Obviously this wouldn't happen in a real scenario but could happen if you are just testing (it happened to me ).
Hope this makes sense.
