ATLAS: Sync a New Member Group with a Workspace (Set Up a Class in ATLAS)

A “member group” is ATLAS nomenclature for a group of users, and PSU uses member groups for course enrollments. Unlike in D2L where your class workspace (your D2L “shell”) is created automatically each term, in ATLAS, you will need to create your workspace and then add your classlist via syncing a member group.
