Managing Students in Lumen OHM

Baird Whelan -

Student Roster

The Roster page is the main page to interact with students in your course—there are several actions that can be performed from here.

  1. Mass Email/Messaging:
    Perhaps the most useful tool on the Roster page is the capability to send mass emails and messages. Emails, of course, will be sent to the students' email addresses while messages will be sent directly in Lumen OHM.

    You can use the check boxes on the side to select specific students, or you can use the Check/Uncheck All: box to select all of your students. Once you have the students selected, you can click E-mail or Message to contact your students.

    To send a message only to students who haven't completed a specific assignment, select all students and then in the options beneath the message check Limit send: and select the assignment in the drop-down menu.

    It will then tell you which students will receive the message.

  2. Lock or Unlock a Student Account
    • Open the course roster page
    • Select the student's name to open the Change User Info page  
    • Check (Lock) or Uncheck (UnLock) the "Lock out of course?" box

  3. Manage Assessment Exceptions
    Occasionally you'll have a student who doesn't complete an assignment on time for a legitimate reason, and you'll want to extend the due date for that assignment. Once again, you can take this action on an individual basis or extend the due date for multiple students at once.

    For an individual student click the word Exception in his or her row; for multiple students, select their check boxes and then click the Make Exception button. This will direct you to a page where you can select the assignment(s) and then adjust the available dates for the assignment.


    There are additional options, including the option to send a message to the student. Once you've changed the settings, press Record Changes.
