Users By default, all users are automatically enrolled in a system-generated course via the course's Banner roster. If a student adds or drops after the start of the semester, Banner will update Blackboard with this change within 24 hours. Students cannot be manually added to a system-generated course because they will just be dropped after the next Banner feed.
However, you can manually add users in other ways:

- Course roles include:
- Course Builder
- Teaching Assistant
- If the Blackboard administrator has created a course shell for you (e.g. a merged course or a site for an organization or department), you can manually enroll students or others and they will not be affected by the Banner feed.
- If you have many users to enroll in an administrator-created course, you can send the administrator a spreadsheet with each user's first name, last name and email address in three columns and she will batch enroll them for you.
