The following instructions will show you how to add instructors, teaching assistants and auditors to a D2L course.
If the participant you need to add is new to the CU Boulder campus or Desire2Learn, you will need to contact the IT Service Center with the following:
From the course homepage, select the Communication drop-down menu and click on Classlist.
Click on Add Participants drop-down menu and select Add an existing users.
A menu will open where you can begin a search for the participant you want to add.
Enter the participant's name. You can enter their first and last name or their CU Login Name. Click Search.
The results will appear.
*Note: If you cannot locate the participant you are trying to add, they may not have an account in D2L or they may already be enrolled in the course. Review the class list to ensure the participant is not already in the course. If they are not, contact the IT Service Center. Provide the participant's CU Login Name or @colorado.edu email address and the course you would like them to be added to and they will be enrolled on your behalf.
Next, assign the participant a role. Click on the Select a Role drop-down menu and make your selection.
