To add users to an existing course shell, visit the My Canvas Course Management tool in myUFL. Please see the My Canvas Course Management: Adding Participants How-To Guide for more information on how to use this tool.

How to add TAs into your course.

If you need additional assistance with getting users enrolled in your course site, contact e-Learning Support either by phone at 352-392-4357 option 3 or by email at learning-support@ufl.edu.

NOTE: This tool can be used to add TAs to specific sections or subsections. However, please keep in mind that UF Online TAs are still required to complete the TA institute. It is possible to add students to the registrar sections of the course, however when the roster is reconciled with the registrar, students who are not properly enrolled in the course will be automatically removed.


How do I limit my TAs to grade only specific students?

Perhaps you have two TAs in a course and want them to grade certain students. To make things easier, you may want to create two sections called TA Bob and TA Jane.  You can then add Bob and the students that you want Bob to grade to his section and then add Jane and the students you want Jane to grade in her section. Please see My Canvas Course Management: Creating Sections How-To Guide for more information on how to create sections for Bob and Jane and their students.  In addition, please see My Canvas Course Management: Adding Participants for information on adding students to Bob and Jane’s sections. 


How do I remove participants from my course?

You will not be able to remove users from within the Canvas course management system. Instead, you will need to visit the My Canvas Course Management tool in myUFL. Please refer to the Removing Participants how-to-guide for more information on how to use this tool.
