Managing Classroom Members

As an administrator, you can add users (learners or instructors) in newly created classrooms to help coordinate with classroom activities and other stuff. Some time you may also need to block, remove users from your classroom as per your requirement. In this article we will talk about how you can manage users in your classrooms.

This article will guide you on:
