These are Enrollable roles.

    • Click on button Enrol alongside the user you wish to enrol
    • Click on button Finish enrolling users
  • Wait a moment for the page to update itself.

Other users can have a role of Coordinator, Colleague, Secretary or Visitor.
A user with any of these roles is not considered a course participant.
To assign one of these roles, click on Other users under item Users in the Administration block.

The roles of Teacher, TA, Grader, Student, Coordinator, Colleague, Secretary and Visitor are Primary Roles.
A user can have one and only one Primary role.

**Search for users by first and/or last name (Hebrew and/or English), or email (or part of email following the first dot), or by 8- or 9-digit ID (i.e. with or without checksum), or by full CSE username.
Note: Default is prefix search. Prefix search string with ~ for full search, or with = for exact search.
If user is not a registered Teacher or Student, and has never used Moodle, search by 8- or 9-digit ID, or full email, or HUJImail username, or full CSE username.
