Introduction: 

Whole School site administrators and teachers have the ability to enroll users into various sections within a course. Instructions below will provide details to perform this action within the Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS). Please note that you will not be able to complete these steps below until you have completed steps 1 and 2 of the Create Course Sections and Move Students process. 


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 a course with no sections, see Enroll Users.


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: Section Code
      Tip: To obtain the section code, first tap Course Admin and then select Sections. At this point, you will see a list of section titles, tap the linked title to display the Section code needed for this column. 
    • COLUMN E: 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).

  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
