There are three ways to add students to your course: publish a link that grants access, or add one or multiple students manually.

I. Publish a link

The easiest way to add students to your course is by publishing a link that automatically grants access to the course. You can publish this link on your online Learning Management System, or you can email this link to your students. 

When the students follow this link, they will be asked to create an account. This account then immediately has access to your course. 

If you wish to use this method, please contact us via chat, email or phone. We will gladly create a link with access token to your course.

Remember, everyone with access to the link has access to your course.

II. One student

To add students manually, you need to log in to your teacher dashboard.

  1. Log in at the platform
  2. Click on 'Monitor' in the upper right of the screen

You can now start adding students.

  1. Click on 'Add Student'

2. Fill in the name, email address (and student-id) of the student.

NOTE: The student-id only needs to be given if your organisation allows for processing student-ids within Grasple. Reach out to us for questions about this.

3. Click 'Add Student'
4. You should now see the student appear in your list of students

III. Multiple students

You can also add multiple students by uploading a CSV file.

1. In the teacher dashboard for a new course, click on 'Add Students by CSV'. 

2. Upload a CSV (comma separated values) file, that has the full name, email address, (student-id) and (optionally) the group of the students you want to give access.

NOTE: The student-id only needs to be given if your organisation allows for processing student-ids within Grasple. Reach out to us for questions about this.

Below you see an example CSV file structure for an organisation without student-id and with groups. Also you can see the interface for uploading the CSV which indicates which columns should be included.

Isaac Newton,i.newton@grasple.com,Group A
Marie Curie,m.curie@grasple.com,Group A
Rosalind Franklin,r.franklin@grasple.com,Group B

Secondly, you see an example CSV file structure for an organisation with student-id and with groups. Also you can see the interface for uploading the CSV which indicates which columns should be included.

Isaac Newton,i.newton@grasple.com,123456,Group A
Marie Curie,m.curie@grasple.com,654321,Group A
Rosalind Franklin,r.franklin@grasple.com,101010,Group B

You can see student ids are required in the instructions when uploading.

3. After uploading the file you can check whether everything is parsed correctly before adding the students to the course. Also you can indicate which columns contains which information columns. Check if all the columns are correct and then upload the students. If you get errors*, correct the file, refresh and try again. 

*If you get an error message saying: 'there are rows with too few columns (less than 2)', check for every row if name and email are filled in correctly and no field is left blank. Sometimes there's an unnoticed white space at the end of the file that causes the error.

4. Check whether adding the students to the course has been successful by checking the summary info and errors.

You can see the following information:

  • Total of students added from the list you uploaded
  • Number of new students
  • Number of updated students (based on e-mailadres)
  • Already registered students (these are not updated because the information of the user might have been manually updated after registration)

5. Send the students an email immediately or wait and send the email later when your course starts. 

5. When you want to send the email later, from your monitor dashboard, click "send invitations" and then "to all uninvited students"

That's it!
