What is it?
SITS is the “source of truth” for student enrolments, and module enrolments are updated nightly from SITS. If you have added or removed a student manually, SITS will override this change.
If you notice a that there is a student who ought to be enrolled in a My Dundee module but is not, you should make sure the SITS enrolments are up-to-date and accurate.
If there is a situation where a student needs to be enrolled on a module in My Dundee, but should not be enrolled in SITS, you can refer to this guide for next steps.
What does it do?
Students will be automatically enrolled onto a module via SITS. However, if there are some discrepancies, this guide will show you what to do. There may also be cases where there are non-SITS enrolments are required and we can help with that.
What should I know?
Once students are registered against a module in the student records system (SITS), students will automatically be added to the relevant module in My Dundee. Any changes to student enrolments in SITS will be updated in My Dundee the following day as the enrolment process runs overnight.
If a student reports that they do not have access to a particular SITS module on My Dundee, their enrolments should first be checked in SITS to ensure they have been added to the correct module(s).
If you have students sitting a module with Extended Due Performance (EDP) status, and require them to be manually added to the current version of a SITS module, please contact Help4U and include the student username(s) and full module code(s) and confirm the student should not be enrolled via SITS.
Shared/Merged SITS modules
If two or more modules share similar teaching, content and assessment, then these can be merged using the Parent and Child functionality in Blackboard. All students enrolled on both the parent and child module(s) in SITS will automatically be added to the parent module on My Dundee. For further information please see our guide to Shared modules.
You have two options when it comes to adding students to a non-SITS module:
1. Bulk enrolment
If your non-SITS module is something that requires a one-off enrolment of users, then please contact Help4U and be sure to include the module name and code (e.g. “My Non-SITS Module Name” ZX11001_SEM0000_2021), along with a list of User IDs (usernames) to be added. You should also indicate what role you want the users added with (e.g. student, instructor, etc.).
2. Manual enrolment
If you only need to add a few users to a module, then the quickest and easiest way is for someone with the role of “Instructor” or “Support” on the module to enrol them manually. Please see our guide to enrolling staff on a module which can be followed to add staff or students to a module. (Please note that you should not add students to a SITS module using this method.)
