We get daily feeds from Banner, so that the list of students in a Moodle course will match the “official” list of students in Banner. More specifically, one day after a student adds or drops a course (via the Registrar’s Office), that student appears in or disappears from your Moodle course.
However, if you have a teaching assistant for your course, he or she will not be part of the official Banner roster for the course, and you’ll need to add him/her into the course manually.
Below is a video that provides step-by-step instructions on how to add a TA to your Moodle course. Please note that the tutorial was created for an earlier version of Moodle, and the video displays a different "theme" (general appearance) for Moodle. Under our current theme, the Administration block is on the right-hand side of the page. When you get to the part where you are searching for the student to add as a TA, if you don’t know your student’s username or email address, you can search for the student by last name (when adding him or her under the teaching assistant status), but then you’ll need to click on the Enroll button next to the correct student from the list of students with that same last name. Once you have entered the username, email address, or last name into the Search window, hit the Enter key on your keyboard to get Moodle to search for that person. (The video omits that important step.)
