Q: What are Role Based Rosters and how do I set up a Role Based Roster for a class?
A: The Role Based Roster tool was designed to allow easy creation of community classes by letting you generate a class roster that is automatically populated with students based on their Account Type, Organization, or Grade Level. As new users are added to your Learning domain they will also be added to any Role Based Roster Classes they meet the criteria for.
Please note that certain features, such as the Gradebook, Attendance, the Inbox, Badges, and the ability to Email Roster are not available for Role Based Roster Classes. One-on-one and Group Discussions are also unavailable in Role Based Roster Classes.
