  1. In the search box, type a name, username, or at least two letters to reveal a list of matches. People already enrolled in your course don’t appear in the search results.
  2. Select one or more people. They immediately appear in the roster list. To reverse a selection, select a person’s name again.
  3. Choose a role for each selected person.
  4. Select Save. The panel closes. At the bottom of the roster, a message appears with the names of the people you added.
