You may want to add other users that is not in your class i.e. adding guests.

Before you do so, you will need to determine if they are to be added as students or as facilitators. If they are to be added as facilitators, you will need to follow the steps for adding facilitators.

If they are to be added as guest students, there are two parts into the process of adding them into the module:

Part 1 – Creating Guest Roster Group

  1. Click the module card from the landing page, you will be brought to the module page.
  2. Click Class & Groups.
  3. Click the Guest Roster tab.
  4. Click + Create Group.
  5. Fill in the Create New Guest Group form.
  6. Click Create Group button. A guest group will be created for you.

Part 2 – Adding users into the group

 Note on IVLE guest accounts (click to expand)

To enhance the security and improve the user experience by simplifying the logins for non-NUS users, the LumiNUS local guest (gstxxx) accounts have been removed. It has been replaced by social media login (identity providers such as Facebook, Google accounts) or to sign up using personal email addresses. 

Below is the impact:

  • Active (not expired) gstxxx accounts with non-NUS email will be migrated.
    The existing password is no longer valid. Please login via the social media login which is tied to the personal email, or create a new password sign-up.
    Change in login for migrated guest (gst) accounts
  • Gstxxx accounts with NUS email will not be migrated.
    Please login using your NUS credential instead.
  • Email address with multiple gst accounts will not be migrated.
  • When adding a non-NUS user as a student into a module, you can simply add in the personal email address. An invitation will be sent to the user. The user will need to login into LumiNUS for the first time in order to activate the account.

We have sent emails to the affected accounts.

Note that there is no change to NUS users logging in using the NUS credentials.

Social Media Login

What is Social Login?

Social Login is single sign-on for end users. Using existing login information from a social networking service such as FacebookTwitter or Google+, the user can sign into a third party website instead of creating a new account specifically for that website. This simplifies registrations and logins for end users.


How does social login work in LumiNUS?

Social Login is a simple process, with the following steps.

  1. The user enters LumiNUS and selects the desired social network provider.
  2. A login request is send to the social network provider.
  3. Once the social network provider confirms the user’s identity, a current user will get access to your application. 

To add multiple students at once, please follow these steps: Batch import Guests into a module.

To add individual students one-by-one:

  1. Click the module card from the landing page, you will be brought to the module page.
  2. Click Class & Groups.

  5. If there is no user, you will see the message No guests – add one. You can click the add one link or alternatively click + Add Guest.
    1. If the user already has an NUS userid, please select Add NUS guests option and search the user by their NUS userid.
      Click Add User button. You will see that the user is added into the guest group.
