Users & Groups Management
|Top Previous Next|
The system allows you to work with users who are enrolled into your course. There are two modes for users management which can be toggled by the Administrator. One of them is Global and the other one is Local. It is only possible to select User groups mode when you are in the administrator interface (Back-end). When the Global mode is selected in the Back-end, it is possible to view and manage a list of course users in the Front-end. When the Local mode is selected in the Back-end, it is possible to view and manage a list of course usergroups in the Front-end.
This mode allows Teachers to add, delete users and teacher assistants, and edit users. Group management is available for the Administator in Back-end only (the Administrator can create and define a group for a user).
To view the course users enter the necessary course and cllick on the Users&Groups Management icon () in the left course menu.
Fig. 'Course Users List'
Here all the course users are displayed. It's possible to use the Dispaly# filter to define the number of users to be shown on the page. If some users have a group then you can filter users according to groups. Now you can add, delete and edit a user or manage teacher assistants.
The course Teacher can add or delete teacher assistants.
To add a teacher assistant:
Fig. 'Teacher Assistants List'
Fig. 'Teacher Assitant Adding'
To manage assistants use Actions () button at the top of the list.
Teachers can add new users to courses. There are two ways to do it:
To add a user from the list of already registered people on the web site:
Fig. 'Adding a User'
To upload a CSV file with the list of new users:
Fig. 'Uploading User from a CSV file'
Users from the uploaded file will be automatically registered on the web site and subscribed to your course.
To manage users use Actions () button at the top of the list.
Local mode gives Teachers the possibility to manage both groups and users.
To view the existing groups click on the Users&Groups Management icon () in the course menu.
Fig.'List of User Groups'
Each Student enrolled into your course or course Assistant belongs to a certain group. By default for each course the system creates two user groups: Teacher assistants and Users without group. When a new Student is enrolled into the course, s/he is added to the group called Users without group. Later on the Teacher can create new groups and move Students to the necessary one.
Use buttons at the top of the list to manage course groups.
To create a new user group:
Fig.'Creating a User Group'
To manage user groups use Actions () button at the top of the list.
If you want to export user groups to a local computer select a group from the list by marking a corresponding check box. Then click on the Export a UserGroup button () at the top of the groups list. You will be proposed to open the file or to save it to a disk. Save it to a disk.
This option can be used for deleting users too, in order that later you could add them to other courses if required.
The Teacher can add users (course Assistants or Students) to their course. Assistants management is the same as for the Global mode.
The system allows you to modify users’ details or delete (unsubscribe) them from the course.
To work with the list of course users:
Fig. ‘List of Users’
Use Actions () button at the top of the list to manage users of the group.
There is no big difference in Global and Local modes as far as users management is concerned.
The same two ways for adding users for the course are used in the Local mode:
Deleting users is carried out using the same as in the Global mode method too. (See Deleting a User topic in the Global mode section.)
When editing users in the Local mode one more option is added. It's possible to move students from the Users without group list to any group created by the course Teacher.
