Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.1. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Category enrolments.
The category enrolments plugin allows users to be enrolled in a category as opposed to individual courses. The plugin has to be enabled by the site administrator (see Enrolment plugins).
Note: It is recommended that Cohort sync is used in preference to category enrolments.
Settings for category enrolment
- Go to the category into which you wish to enrol users. Note: You need to have category rights (manager or administrator)
- In the Settings box,click Assign roles. The list of possible roles you can assign will appear:
Admin settings for category enrolment
The category enrolment plugin may be enabled or disabled throughout the site in Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments> Manage enrol plugins.
Assigning teachers or students to a category
- By default, only managers and course creators can be assigned category-wide. If you want to add teachers or students then the site administrator needs to tick the "category" box in their role in Settings > Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles.
- To ensure they will be automatically assigned as teachers/students in any new courses you make, the administrator needs to set to "allow" the capability enrol/category:synchronised for the role in question in Settings > Site Administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles
