This tutorial is operating system independent.


Students and TAs are automatically assigned to sections in Desire2Learn if they are also assigned to sections in their official CU Boulder courses. If a TA is not assigned to a course or section in their official CU Boulder course (as detailed in MyCUInfo), they will need to be manually assigned to sections. The tutorial below demonstrates the process of adding users to sections.

Important Notes

  • If you would like assistance adding your TA to your official CU Boulder course and sections, contact your Departmental Program Assistant.
  • Although you can create your own sections and manually add students for small group activities, we encourage you to use the Groups tool instead. Visit the Groups tool tutorial for more information.

Step 1

Log into your course and click Edit Course located on the Navigation Bar.

Step 2

Click on the Sections link.

Step 3

Click Enroll Users. A list of all the users in your course will appear.

Step 4

Check a section box to the right of a user’s name to assign them to a section. Unenroll users by unchecking the section box(es).

To assign TAs responsible for multiple sections, tick a box for each of their sections respectively.

*Note: Click the per page drop down menu to increase the number of users listed per page.

Step 5

Click Save.

Step 6

Verify the accuracy of the section assignments by clicking on the number in the Users column to the right of each section.

Step 7

Users will now be added to your course sections. TAs will only view students in the sections they are assigned to.
