Instructors and TAs may want to export their D2L Brightspace classlist to record notes, to take attendance, or to organize grading outside of the learning management system. Exporting a Brightspace classlist is quick and simple. A class list can be exported to either .csv or Excel file formats. In Brightspace, a full list of students in the course can be exported via the Grades tool. Instructors are also able to download a full list of registered students directly from Carleton Central.

NOTE: There is no way to export a class list from the Classlist tool itself in Brightspace. The Grades tool is the only option within Brightspace for exporting the Classlist.
