Manually enrol participants and assign them a role in your unit

Students are automatically enrolled into your unit via direct integration with Callista (refer to your faculty administrator for details).

As a lecturer, you can manually enrol Monash staff or students into your unit and assign them a specific role, e.g. as a non-primary lecturer, or as an observer.
