How do I add participants to my site?

In course sites for official courses, student enrollment is handled automatically through Sakai's integration with DukeHub. However, site owners can add other participants such as TAs, Designers, etc., to their site using Kits.  Kits allows you to add participants to your course or project site who are not in an official course roster. This includes people with a Duke NetID and visitors.

Go to Site Info.

Site Info tool highlighted in the site Tool Menu.

Select the Site Info tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Click Add Participants.

Add Participants tab highlighted in Site Info tabs.

Click Add Participants from Site Info tabs.

2. In the Role drop-down menu, select the role of the participant in the site.

3. Click the Add button to add the participant.

4. Click the Finish button to complete the process of adding the participant to your site.

Once you have added new participants in Kits, you should see their names and roles listed under Manage Participants in Sakai. Participants who were imported from the course roster (from the official Student Information System, aka SIS) will also appear here and have Sakai role names (like instructor or student).
