How to Add a Learner to a Live Course

Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, a learner needs to be added to a cohort after the course has been launched. This article outlines the process to add a learner to a live course. 

How to add a learner to a live course 

  1. Navigate to the course home page.
  2. Click on the admin wrench icon in the course header. 
  3. Click Manage Members.
  4. If the learner does not already have an account, you will need to create a new account for them. Once the learner has an account, use the Add a Member field to search for them by name or email address and then click on their account. You will receive a “Member added successfully” message to indicate that the learner has been added to the cohort.

What happens after you add a learner to a live course?

  • The learner will begin to receive all course notifications, including the automated daily reminders.
  • The learner will be able to view the course under Courses.
  • The learner can be added to a breakout group if the course contains breakout groups.
  • The learner will not receive the original launch letter, though it is recommended that you forward them a copy of the email using your email provider (it is not possible to send a second launch letter after the course has been launched).
  • The learner will not automatically receive a calendar invitation for any live events in the course, so it is recommended that you send any invitations to them.
