Adding attendees to your Virtual Classroom is necessary only under the following circumstances:
- You are creating a Restricted Virtual Classroom And/Or
- You are inviting external participants (individuals not listed in the VU Collaborate classlist) to the room.
Please Note: If you are creating a Public Room, and do not need to add external participants, then you do not need to Add Attendees to your Virtual classroom, as all participants listed in your VU Collaborate classlist will be automatically enrolled in your Virtual classroom under the Participant role.
If you meet one or both of the above criteria, you will need to Add Attendees to your Virtual classroom. You may Add Attendees to your Virtual classroom either when creating a New Room (see Creating Rooms help page) or by editing a previously created room (see the Edit Rooms help page).
From within either the New Room or Edit Room screen click the Add Attendees button.

To add a participant enrolled in VU Collaborate space to your Virtual Classroom:
Search: If your space contains a large quantity of users or groups and/or sections, use the Search bar to search for them.

Review Selected Items: The email address(es) of the external participant(s) you are inviting to your Virtual classroom will be displayed in the Review Selected Items area.
