Change a Class Members Role in the Class

This option is most useful when enrolling a colleague to your course. When you enroll them, they will be enrolled with the role of a student. You can now enroll them as a Teaching Assistant. This will give them the same rights you have as an instructor in the course.

To change a users Role, scroll down to #4 Role and Availability. Choose a role, and then select Submit at the bottom of the page.

4 Role and Availability

NOTE: Be very careful to NOT change the role of a current student. Changing the role to anything other than a Student will remove them from the Gradebook and remove any work that has been posted.

Send an Email to a Specific Class Member

This is a simple place to email a single user. List the user and click on the email address. This will open your email client that is setup on your computer (ex: Outlook, Outlook Express, etc.)

User list email

If you do not have an email client setup on your computer or you would like to email several students at one time, go back to the Control Panel and select Send Email under Course Tools.

Password Option:

This option is not available. BPCC policy does not allow any user to change the Password of another user. Users can change their own Password by using the Personal Information tool on the My BPCC page or the Personal Information tool in their course.
