You can use the Classlist to see who’s enrolled in your course, check who’s online and to send emails. Users who are currently logged into Learning Environment appear with a green dot beside their names.
The Classlist tool is also a central area for managing information about users. The list is usually organized into tabs. The classlist tabs will have different tabs for different roles or groups of roles.
From the Classlist tool you can view user profiles, personal homepages, blogs, and progress; print a classlist; check enrollment reports; and change enrollment information, including enrolling and removing users, changing roles, unlocking accounts, and resetting passwords.
The Online Status icon (green dot) displays beside the names of other users who are currently online.

SHOW / HIDE SCREENSHOTS
Within the Classlist tool instructors have the ability to change how many users are displayed in the Classlist table by selecting display options from the corresponding drop-down menu, as shown below (maximum of 200 users per page). This feature is especially useful when an instructor wishes to e-mail all students in a class from a single screen. When checking the select all checkbox, D2L will select only the users listed on the page. So, if a class has more than 200 students, instructors should copy their message as they'll also have to send it to the remaining students on the next page.
OIT provides documentation for a great variety of topics associated with the Classlist section of Desire2Learn, including adding and removing course participants. To see a full list of these topics visit the the Instructors Tutorials page.
