edit and update a gridview control

Here's my question:

The gridview shows all the items the student has already learned.  

Can the gridview be updated to add new data?  

For instance, the user wants to add another piece of item to learn and give a brief reason?  I will add the dropdownlist and textbox control to the gridview (in edit mode, I assume)The dropdownlist will be bound to a datasource.  Once the user has made a selection and typed a reason in the textbox, they will update the gridview to show what they have done.  AFter they see that, they click a button which will launch a new page with the gridview so that an approver can approver can "ok"  or "deny" the request.

I don't know how to edit or update the gridview.  Can someone tell me how this is done or if this makes sense to do this way?

Thanks in advance
