Manually Add Users

Students officially enrolled through the OHIO Registrar are loaded into your Blackboard course automatically beginning two (2) weeks before the course start date. You can add, define the roles of, and remove additional users, such as TAs or a co-instructor, at any time. For more information on course roles and controlling access to the content and tools within your course, please see the Course Roles Blackboard Help page.

The instructions below go along with this quick video: Manually Add Users - Ohio University (video hosted on Panopto)
