This article covers 3 ways to add students to a course:
Note: You should only add students after you (or your university) have paid for student seats, or set up your course to enable student purchase. If you need to buy student seats, please log in to your course and click User Info and then Purchase Seats. If you need to enable student purchase, click Edit on the Course overview page and then check the box that says Student Purchase. If you need assistance or have questions about payment, email email@example.com.
For courses operating within an LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.), students will automatically be enrolled in the Peerceptiv course using their LMS credentials when they first click on a Peerceptiv assignment link you created in the LMS. In other words, after you create the assignment in your LMS and tell your students to click on that assignment link, they will join the class through that link.
- Go to Roster/Status and then click on Add student.
- Add students to the class by using the spreadsheet upload method or uploading a class list that includes student emails in a text file. The other option is to copy and paste a list of students in following format with one student per line: Email, FirstName, LastName.
- Once you add students to the roster, they will receive an email with a link to create a Peerceptiv account. It is helpful to let students know that should be looking for an email with a log-in link. They should check their junk or spam folders if they don't see the email in their inbox. If they do not click the link in the email or lose the email, they will need to request a password re-set before they can complete activating their account.
You also have the option to provide students with a class code that they will use to sign up for your course. You can find the class code on the Course Overview screen.
