How do I populate learners while using an LMS?

This article will teach you how to populate learners while using an LMS. Once learners obtain their access code from your organizational bookstore, they’ll submit the code at activation or during the sign in action at the initial stages after you invite them into your course. InteDashboard access codes have an ISBN number. So the learners purchase the code in no different manner than they would purchase a textbook, or any other code from a required course component. If you have a list of learner who are using an LTI, you can pre-populate the teams and sections by following the steps below.

This Guide is for:

  • Super Admin
  • Teacher Admin (Full-Access)
  • Teacher, (Owner Full-Access)

Additional Information

  • You can check if your learners have activated their accounts by looking into the student organization data within your course.
  • Learner usernames(emails) cannot be changed after enrollment. You will need to create a new account for that learner if a change is desired.
  • Learners can use the same username(email) for multiple courses. One InteDashboard subscription covers all courses within the registered email and\or academic institution.
  • If a learner is enrolled into two universities at once, the learner will need to purchase two different subscriptions since the activation information is tied to their email address.
