How to Add a Faculty Member to Your Course

  1. Before you begin, go to your email and copy the JagID of the faculty member you wish to add. Also known as username, this ID is the first part of that person’s Augusta University email. For example, my email is, so my JagID is “glaws”.
  2. In D2L, go to Classlist.
  3. Click AddParticipants.
  4. Select “Add existing users”.
  5. In the Search for box, paste the JagID you copied earlier.
  6. Run the search by pushing the magnifying glass symbol or by pressing Return on your keyboard.
    • Note: If the D2L user was not found, it means that the s/he is not yet listed as a faculty member in Banner; please contact your Banner administrator.
  7. Check the box to the left of the person’s name.
  8. Select the role of Instructor (this is D2L’s terminology for faculty).
  9. Select the course section (in the case of crosslisted or shared courses, any section works just as well).
    • Note: You have the option to email the faculty member at this stage by simply checking a box. Whether you use this option or first complete the enrollment and then send out an email (from D2L’s Classlist or from Outlook), be sure to let your colleague know that you’ve enrolled him/her in this particular course.
  10. Complete the enrollment by clicking Enroll button at the bottom left of the screen.
  11. Click Done.
