Adding Students

Automatic Updates

During the first few weeks of the quarter, your classlist will be updated daily to include any students who have just registered for your course. You do NOT need to add students yourself, though you may do so if you want to (see below).

However, students who are added automatically will NOT be assigned any homework assignments. You must assign these to students yourself, for example by using the “Assign to all students” function for each open assignment.

Automatic updates usually occur by 10 AM each weekday morning. You will receive an email from our computer staff when these daily updates are no longer occurring.
