Moodle enrollments are synchronized with Banner. In most cases, therefore, it is not necessary for you to add or remove students in Moodle. To combine enrollments from multiple CRN's, follow these instructions.
Under special circumstances, you may wish to add a user to your Moodle course site. For example:
If you enroll a wait-listed student in Moodle, be sure to check your official class roster to verify that the student has formally registered for the class. Being able to access the course site and attend class may lull the student into a false sense of having registered and lead to problems at the end of the term when grades are posted.
You can add users to a single CRN site or to a combined (meta) course as follows:
Multiple Users with the Same Name
It can be tricky figuring out who's who in Moodle when more than one user has the same name. If your search on a student's name returns more than one user with the same name, enroll one or more of them according to the instructions above. Once a student is enrolled, you can see if you enrolled the correct student by clicking on the picture associated with the student's name, bringing up the student's profile. Check the student's email address against your roster to see if you have enrolled the right student.
If you have two students with the same display name enrolled in your class, you can distinguish between the two by creating a group for one of them—contact the Center for Instructional Support for assistance.
