A course is not complete without participants, so here we have a guide about the People’s menu.

When adding students to a course use the "Student" role and to add teachers/administrators use the role "Teacher". Worth knowing may be that a user in Canvas has no roles by default, the role is assigned when a user is added to a course. This means that a Canvas user can be a teacher in one course but a student in another.  

At SLU, teachers and students will be added primarily through integration with other systems, so some sections of the guide are less relevant.
