How to add names of new users in Canvas?


I would like to add new students to a course in Canvas with their e-mail addresses, but I don't know how to introduce the names of the students. Canvas asks me to introduce manually one by one the names of the different students. Is there a possibility of inserting all the names at once for a list of more than 200 students? 

Thank you,

Hello  @nicolas_vamvas_ ...

If you are an admin for your school's Canvas instance, you could load all the students via SIS import.  This would first create the user account in Canvas and then enroll them into the specified course.  Although I do not know the whole programming side of getting this set up, here are some Guides for you that may help: Admin Guide - SIS Imports.
