Is it possible to assign individual students to particular Courses in LabTutor 4?

Yes, there a couple of ways you can do this.


How to assign an existing student to a restricted course:

  1. Log in to LabTutor Server as an Administrator or Instructor (must be assigned to that course)
  2. Navigate to Student > Find and Edit
  3. Search for that student and click Edit
  4. Unrestricted courses will be listed in Course list for that student and restricted courses in Available courses
  5. Double-click a restricted course, or highlight and click ^ Add ^ to have that restricted course added to that student's course list, now able to be accessed from their homepage.

How to assign a new student to a restricted course:

  1. Log in to LabTutor Server as an Administrator or Instructor (must be assigned to that course)
  2. Go to Students > Add a Student.
  3. Enter a unique student User Name.
  4. Enter a unique User ID.
  5. Enter the student’s Given name and Family name.
  6. You can also enter an Email address if desired.
  7. Click the Protected checkbox if necessary.
  8. By default, all unrestricted courses are displayed in this student's Course list. All restricted courses will be listed in Available courses and may be added to the Course list by selecting and clicking ^ Add ^, or double-clicking. Courses in the Course list will be available and displayed on that students home page.
  9. Click Save.

The other approach is to navigate to a new or existing course in the Server Admin pages, check the box Allow students to add this course with access code:, define an course access code and communicate this to relevant student(s). They are then able to add (assign) themselves to this course by logging in, clicking the + Add course button on the student home page and entering the relevant course access code.


In either case, the result will be that the restricted course becomes visible and available on that student's home page.
