Students must be invited to your course so that they can have access to all of your lessons and modules. Once invited, your Course will appear on their kuraCloud homepage, and they will have access to everything that has been published. From the admin pages, you can keep track of how your students are progressing through your lessons. Please take care to enter the correct email address of each student when inviting them to your course.
The Students Card
The Students card is accessed by selecting Students from the Course card. Here you can Import and invite students, Delete and Restore students, and filter or search for students by name.
Students that have been deleted can be found using the Search Deleted Records filter and then restored to the course by selecting Restore.
