Student Management

I want to change my student's password, how do I do this?
How do I batch upload my student list?
I see a question mark (?), a plus (+), or neither by student names. What does that mean?

 

Q. I want to change my students passwords how do I do this?

Changing a student's password is done from the Manage Course area, this will affect the student's myWebCT password. A myWebCT ID cannot be altered by the instructor, CURRENTLY this can only be done by the WebCT administrator.

Q. How do I batch upload my student list?

Batch uploading large student lists is possible in WebCT, if formatted and saved correctly from within any spreadsheet program.

NOTE: The adding student process will change with the implementation of the UH Banner System (part of the Student Information System Project Management) tentatively slotted for Fall 2003. With this new registration system instructors will no longer have the capability to add students, it will be an auto enroll upon official registration.

Q. I see a question mark (?), a plus (+), or neither by student names. What does that mean?

A question mark (?) means that the user's myWebCT account ID is different than the courses INITIAL ID. If you click on the ?, a popup window will appear listing the student's existing myWebCT ID.

A user without a ? or + means that the user's INITIAL ID matches their myWebCT ID.

A plus (+) by the users name means that you've added them to your course, but the student has not added the course to their myWebCT account yet OR the student has never logged into the course.
