You can invite users to join your course at any time if the Add People button is available in the People page.
When an enrollment is manually added to the course, Perceivant generates a course invitation once the course is published. The user must accept the course invitation to participate in the course. Until the user accepts the course invitation, the user's status will display as pending.
In Course Navigation, click the People link.
Click the Add People button.
Select User Search
To add a user, you can search for users with up to one of three options: email address, login ID, or SIS ID. Perceivant only uses email address.
Search by Email
By default, the search field is set to search by email address . In the text field , enter the email address for the user. You can copy and paste multiple users at one time, such as from a comma separated value (CSV) file, by placing a comma or line break between users.
Email addresses can be enclosed by less than ( < ) or greater than ( > ) symbols, although it is not required.
Select User Details
In the Role drop-down menu , assign the user(s) a role for the course based on available course roles.
In the Section drop-down menu , assign the user(s) a section in the course.
If you want to limit the user(s) to only interact with other users in their section, click the Can interact... checkbox .
Click the Next button .
Note: If you are adding multiple users at the same time, all users inherit the same role and section.
Add New User
If Perceivant is not able to find a match for the user(s), you can choose to add the user(s) to your course.
Perceivant may ask you if you want to create a new user account if the user does not have a username in the course's account, the user's email address is linked to another user within the account, or the institution does not use delegated authentication.
To add all users in the search results, click the Select All checkbox . To add an individual user, click the checkbox next to the user's name .
Add the new user's name in the field next to their email address. If no name is added, the email address will be used as their name.
When you are ready, click Next.
The next screen will look like the Add Existing Users below.
Add Existing Users
If Perceivant finds an existing user, you can confirm the user before adding the user to the course .
The user's name displays in the page along with the user's information you used in the user search. Although Perceivant may display additional search columns, existing information in a user's account will not be displayed.
When you are ready, click the Add Users button .
View Pending Enrollment
Until the user accepts the course invitation, the user's status will display as pending. Note that observer invitations will only show as pending if the invited observer does not already have a Perceivant account.
If you added a user without a Perceivant account, the user can create an account as part of the course invitation process.
Once the user has accepted the course invitation, you can interact with the user in the course. You can also send messages to the user via Conversations.
Note: It could take up to 24 hours for users to receive their invitations. Perceivant will not consider the user to be enrolled—and won't recognize the user anywhere in Perceivant—until the invitation has been accepted. If necessary, you can resend course invitations.
