Canvas – Adding Users to Course

Adding Users to Course

As an instructor, you can enroll users as TAs, instructors, etc. in your Canvas course.

To add a user to your course:

  1. In your course, click on People in the navigation bar, then click +People.
  2. Under Add user(s) by, select Login ID. Do not add users by email address, as this creates a duplicate account that is not tied to their OU account.
  3. In the box, type or copy/paste in the OU username of the user(s) you would like to add to the course (OUNetID, 4x4, or HSC username). If you are adding multiple users, separate their usernames with a comma.
  4. Choose the Role the user(s) should have and the Section they should be added to (if necessary). If you are adding multiple users at once, they will all be given the same permissions.
  5. If desired, check the box next to Can interact with users in their section only to restrict the user’s access.
  6. Hit the Next button.
  7. You will see a verification screen. If the information is correct, click Add Users.
  8. If you need to add additional users with different permissions, repeat steps 1-7.
