Tutorial: How can I add users to aNewSpring?

Last modified: 2017-07-26 11:20:27 +0200

This tutorial shows you how you can create accounts for learners in aNewSpring.

1) Adding a new user

Go to the Users tab and click + User.

Enter the details of the new user. Fields with an asterisk are mandatory.

When a learner starts with his first course, the year of the license will begin. When the learner has an active course subscription afther that year, the license will be renewed.  You can prevent this by uncheck License is renewable, then the learner will be archived.  

Finally, click Create to finalise the account.

Each email address can only be used for one account. For a new user, you must enter a unique email address.


2) Manage user rights and roles

  • Learner: takes a course. (for each learner that is registered for a course, a paid license is listed)
  • Instructor: tutors an active course.
  • Author: can place educational materials such as questions and content in the system.
  • Designer: can create templates out of existing questions and course content.
  • Mentor: a third party who can monitor the efforts and progress of the learners.
  • Reseller: can create access codes and manage the course catalogue.
  • Administrator: manages the learning environment. Responsible, among other things, for creating content folders and managing users.
  • Tenant: has the tab 'Getting Started' from which licences can be purchased. (This check box is only visible if you have the role 'Tenant')

Read more details about this in: Roles and rights of users within the aNewSpring platform

Tick the checkboxes for roles you want to give this user and click Update to save changes. 

Next tabs will appear where the privileges of the roles can be set.

Tab: Learner

You can enrol learners in a course by clicking on + Subscription. Choose one or more courses from the pop-up and click Update

Adding a learner to a group works the same as enrolling. The learner is then immediately enrolled in all courses that are united in that group.

Use the import function when you have a lot of learners/users to add into aNewSpring. Read more about: Importing users

Tab: Instructor

An instructor must be enrolled in an instructor group before they can tutor learners. When you click + Group, a popup with all instructor groups will appear. Select one or more and click Update.
