You can add participants to community courses (non-academic) if you are a ‘Super Leader’.
1. In your Brightspace community course, click on Classlist, then Add Paricipants, and select Add Existing Users
2. Search by student first, last name or username. If more than one student comes up with the same name, make sure to verify by checking their username to confirm you are adding the correct student.
3. Once you find the correct student, check the box next to the student name, click the dropdown that says “Select a Role” and select Participant. Make sure to click “Enroll Selected Users.”
