How do I Add and/or Enroll Users?

Hover over the Actions tab and click on the Users option. There you can:

Add Member
You can add a single user to the User Group, provide the user’s details and an invitation email will be sent, asking the user to set a password for accessing CORE University.

Bulk Add Members
Click on Bulk add members, download the Excel template (see below), and fill in the user details in Excel to add users to this specific User Group.
The file you will upload shouldn't be differentiated from the Excel template. Here are some tips to follow:
a. Download the sample file (Excel template).

Use this template and add the data in the respective default fields. Do not alter the fields or add additional ones. A username and email are required (for "username," you can add a name and surname).

Clear Formatting: In the case of copy-paste, keep in mind to copy the cells without any formatting, and since you will be adding emails, make sure they are not added as links.
Ctrl+Shift+V for Windows or Command+Shift+V for Mac would help to clear formatting when copy-pasting.
When the Excel file is ready, upload it in the respective field.
Meanwhile, you can track the progress of the bulk action if you go to Reports Center → User action log.

I enrolled the user(s) into a course but they are unable to access it?

If you have enrolled user(s) into a course but they are unable to access it, there could be a few possible reasons for this issue. It's important to ensure a smooth user experience for all courses hosted here at CORE University. Below are some suggestions to address the problem:

  3. Payment for Paid Courses: If the course is a paid course, ensure that the enrolled users are aware of the payment requirement. Communicate clearly that they need to complete the payment process to gain access to the course materials. Provide instructions or a payment link to facilitate the payment process.

Troubleshoot issues with Video

Our video player automatically tries to adjust the video quality to your internet speed, giving you the highest quality possible but in certain cases, for slow connections, this might not be possible. If you are experiencing excessive buffering during playback, it is probably because your Internet connection cannot support continuous playback of the video. In this case try to reset your connection/internet router or, if possible, try accessing your online courses using a better internet connection.
You may also want to try one of the following:

1. Close extra browser tabs or other applications that may be using up your bandwidth.

2. Make sure you are using the latest version of your browser.
