how can my students join my class
Hi jake and welcome to the Canvas Community! There are a variety of ways that a student can be added to a course but this depends a great deal how an institution has Canvas configured. At many institutions, students are added to classes only through a formal registration process where the system enrolls students once registered. Students can also be added through the People's tab of a class if allowed by an institution (How do I add users to a course?) or students can be permitted to self enroll in classes, again if allowed by an institution (How do I enable course self-enrollment with a join code or secret URL?).
Might any of these work in your situation?
All the best!
