Manage members

As community administrator, you can add anyone with a WU user account as a member or remove community members.

  1. In the left-hand menu in your community, click “Administrate”.
  2. Click on “members”.
  3. Click the button “Add a member” or “Remove members”.

By manually adding and removing members, you can customize your member list.

You can add multiple members at once using a CSV file.

  1. Create a worksheet in a spreadsheet program and save it as a CSV file or export the member list from another course.
  2. In the left-hand menu in your community, click “Administrate”.
  3. Click on “members”.
  4. Click the "Bulk Member Add" button.
  5. Select the CSV file and upload it with "OK".

Only those persons are added as members who do not yet appear as members in the  course.

You can create a member list for your course and print it so you can use it as a hard-copy attendance list in your classes.

  1. In the left-hand side menu in your course, click “Administrate”..
  2. Click on “members”.
  3. In the member administration section, click on “Print template of Member List”.
  4. Please select the appropriate roles and the sorting settings you’d like to use. It is also possible to export students’ ID photos. However, please take care to respect your students’ privacy and don’t add photos to the attendance lists that the students need to sign in your classes.
  5. Click “OK”.

The member list you’ve created is exported to Rich Text Format (.rtf). You can open the file in Microsoft Word.

As community administrator, you can assign specific roles to members to give them read-only or editing rights. Roles can be assigned automatically or manually.

  1. In the left-hand side menu in your course, click “Administrate”.
  2. Click on “members”.
  3. In the “Actions” column in the member table, find the user whose role you’d like to change and click on the icon “Change role of this user”.
  4. Select the role you’d like to assign to the member in the drop-down menu.
  5. Click the button “Change role”.

The following roles can be assigned:

Role Rights Additional information

Editing rights

On MyLEARN, instructors are either named manually or synced automatically with the BACH system. The instructor is displayed by name in the course overview. Instructors have editing rights for their courses.

Instructor (without admin privileges)

Read-only rights

Instructors (without admin privileges) can be added manually. They are listed as instructors, but they cannot edit any course materials.

Teaching Assistant

Editing rights

This role can be assigned manually to anyone who is in charge of managing a course but does not have instructor status, e.g. secretarial staff, assistants, and tutors.


Read-only rights

Students who sign up for a course via LPIS are automatically listed as “students” in the member list. This role cannot be assigned manually. If you add students or other persons who have not signed up using LPIS, they will be assigned “member” status.


Read-only rights

This role is assigned to students who are added manually.

You can filter various groups of people by role. The filter function is available on the left-hand side, next to the member overview.
