adding (a lot of) people to sections

Asked by raggar on 2012-01-17

I would like to add students to a section from a course. But since I have a lot of students this is a very time-consuming task. Is it possible to add a group of students to a section?
At the moment I add all the students one at a time.

Or else, is it possible to select multiple students from a search by group and than add those students to the section?

In the meantime, an alternative is to import a list of students from the section view ("Import Students CSV") in the sidebar. Or import all of them using the Excel import (

I love the good work you and others are doing. I hope too contribute in a few months.
