Teachers have administrative powers that are not available to students so that they can create, edit and manage accounts on the site.
In this section, a teacher can create new accounts to add users to the site.
Step 1. Click "Administer" in the navigation box, then select "User management," then "Users."
Step 2. Click the "Add user" tab at the top of the User page.
Step 3. Fill in the username, email address and password fields. Select "active" status and then check all applicable boxes under "Roles" according to the following guidelines:
- Click "student" if the account is for a student
- Click "teacher" if the account is for another teacher. Teachers can see and do things on the site that students cannot.
- Click "mentor" if the account is for a mentor. Mentors can see and do things on the site that students cannot.
Step 4. Select class membership. Under the "Groups" heading, check the box(es) beside each group you want the user to be able to see and post content to. Users will not be able to participate in groups not selected.
Step 5. Click "Create new account" when you are finished.
