D2L Course - Add, Remove, or Change User 

Samples of the use for this form are:

  • Someone will be building the content of your course (Add, Course Master/Designer/Developer)
  • A librarian will help within your D2L course (Add, Librarian)
  • You have someone who will review your development course (Add, Faculty Reviewer)
  • You have a peer faculty member who wants to use a copy of your course (Add, co-Instructor)
  • You have students who will assist with everything in your course (Add, TA)
  • You have someone who would like to look at your course as a student would see the course (Add, Student)
  • You have a student with an incomplete who needs to continue to work within a D2L course (Change, Incomplete student)
  • Someone was reviewing your course material and no longer needs to be in the course (Remove, REMOVAL)

Banner/Pipeline automatically adds and removes all officially enrolled and unenrolled students and adds all instructors into D2L courses. If for some reason what appears in Banner/Pipeline doesn't match what appears within D2L, feel free to use this form.

This needs to match the instructor in the D2L course or be a department chair.

Type in Dev if this is for a development course. Please include the year and Fall, Spring or Summer

Sample: HIST 1010 D03 NOTES: The section number must be included. You may list more than one course here but please give the corresponding CRNs in the next field.

Sample: 87243.201880 - typically the number starts with a 1 for spring courses, starts with a 5 for summer courses or starts with an 8 for fall courses. This number may be found in Pipeline or within the D2L My Courses Widget. NOTES: List more than one if you need to add the same person to several courses using the same role. List Dev here if the course is not a normal semester course.

Changing the role is typically to an incomplete student so they may continue to access course information after the end date of the D2L course.

Sample: John Doe; Mary Lamb; Robert Miller NOTE: You may list more than one person and their matching user information in the field below as long as everyone will get the same role.

If you listed more than one person, please give the corresponding usernames here for each person. If the person is a non-MTSU person, please list their "outside" email here and note "non-MTSU" beside the email.

See the bottom of the page for details about these roles.

This could be a faculty member who needs full design and administration privileges for the course such as someone who is covering for the official Banner/Pipeline instructor for a short period of time.
