Last Updated: 03/24/2014

Overview

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.

About Classlists

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.
