Add Members to Group First Option: My Big Campus users can navigate to the site (via the More Groups link in the left navigation bar or by searching for your group’s name) and click “Join Group.” As the group owner, you will receive a notification where you can accept or deny the request.
Add Members to Group Second Option: If you know who should be members in your group, you may add them yourself. Click on the picture below to view how it is done.
Add Members to Group As shown in the previous video clip, if the button for Members is available to you, you may enter your own class lists into your groups. Click on Members and begin typing names under Search for users to add. My Big Campus will look up matching names as you type and auto-complete them. Click Add Users when you’re done finding members.• Check with the IT Department to see if this option will be available to you.
Add Members to Group Final Option: If you are using My Big Campus with the Lightspeed Web Filter, your tech staff can auto-create account memberships with data from your student information system. IT may decide to add all students to the groups themselves.
