The Classlist tool shows all of the students (and instructors, designers, teaching assistants, etc.) that have access to your course. It is an unofficial class roll. Grizzly Den is the OFFICIAL class roll.
The Classlist is updated several times a day according to enrollment data coming from Grizzly Den. While it is possible for instructors to manually add students to the Classlist, we STRONGLY encourage you to allow the automatic process that runs multiple times per day to manage student enrollment/unenrollment in the MyCourses class.
The Classlist can be helpful for sending mail to students more efficiently than using the Mail Tool.
The exception to the recommendation to not manually enroll/unenroll a student is related to attendance verification. When a student is unenrolled from a class due to the attendance verification process, an instructor may choose to add the student back temporarily using the Classlist’s Add Participant feature. Adding a student back restores all data (assignments, discussions, quizzes, etc.) allowing the instructor to confirm whether the student did or not did complete activities. Once confirmation of activity is made, an instructor should unenroll the student.
Instructors may also update student access to a class after the semester ends to assist with the completion of a course using the Classlist tool.
