Introduction: 

Whole School site administrators and teachers have the ability to enroll users from a course. Instructions below will provide details to perform this action within the Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS).


Step 1. Create CSV File for Import

Step 2. Import Users

Step 3. Check the Course Roster


To remove users from a course, see Unenroll Users.

To enroll users into one course with multiple sections, see Enroll Users into Multiple Sections.


Step 1. Create CSV File for Import

  1. First, create a CSV file, using the Import Template, with the following rows of user information. Each user will have their own row.
    • COLUMN A: Enter your school prefix (obtain this from your Michigan Virtual contact), followed by a dash, then the student ID. Example: NHS-98983 (ensure you do not have any spaces)
    • COLUMN B: First name
    • COLUMN C: Last name
    • COLUMN D: Enter the word Student if this is a student user or the word Teacher if this is a teacher.
  2. Next, save information as a CSV file.
  3. Proceed to Step 2. Import New Users (below).

Step 2. Import Users

  1. Begin by navigating to your Brightspace course and then selecting Course Admin from the top navbar.
  2. Next, tap Classlist within the Learner management section.
  3. Then tap Import users from a file on your computer from the Add Participants drop-down button.
  4. Next, tap the Choose File button, browse to the saved file location and then select Open.
  5. At this point, tap the Import button to proceed.
  6. Review the list of users that have been enrolled successfully and then tap the Done button to exit.

    NOTE: There will be an error message displayed, please disregard this error as it is simply an indicator that a user was not created from the header row.

  7. Finally, check your course roster to ensure all users have been enrolled successfully.


Step 3. Check the Course Roster

  1. First, tap Course Admin from the top navbar.
  2. Next, tap Classlist within the Learner Management section.
