  3. Click Add New Users
  4. If you are adding more than 500 users, you should use the Import Users feature in the next section.

    1. Language: Set the learner's language
    2. Sign-Language Interpreter: Select yes if this list of learners will all require a Sign-Language Interpreter
    3. User Authentication: Will these users be authenticating via Username and Password, or are they authenticating via SSO 
  8. You can add one email at a time or paste a list. A space, comma, or semicolon should separate emails.  Press enter to confirm each selection.
  9. Once you've added all your users, click Proceed
  10. The system will scan your list and will alert you if there are duplicate emails, emails that already exist in the system, or if any email is invalid

    Resolve these issues by fixing the typos or removing the duplicate emails, and click Proceed to add your list of users.
