Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Add/edit courses.

This page is linked via the main page by administrators>user management>enrol students. There is nothing here about that. Is there a linking problem or is the page just incomplete???? --Robin Greaves 13:38, 30 April 2007 (CDT)

Hi Robin, I'm not sure how you arrived here from enrol students, as this page is linked from the Add/edit courses page within Moodle. What version of Moodle are you using? --Helen Foster 09:01, 4 October 2007 (CDT)

How do I set the default category for new courses to be added to? Donna Hrynkiw 12:06, 21 May 2008 (CDT)

Good question Donna! Please see the tip added to Add/edit courses. --Helen Foster 02:31, 22 May 2008 (CDT)

Is this different in 1.9?

Tip #2 about preventing teachers from editing the course's full name, short name, or ID number fields doesn't seem to work in 1.9.2 - I went to Define Roles, edited the Teacher role, and I don't see anything matching those capabilities. Christina Heikkila

Hi Christina, Thanks for comment,those instructions needed to be a bit more 1.9ish. I went to, logged in as admin and was able to see the things which could be changed. You may notice the faded text below the English permission. I believe this is the code identifier. It is an old habit for some people to use that id for example "moodle/course:changefullname" Since the permissions go on for screens, I tend to use a search function (Ctr F in Mozilla Firefox) to find anything on that screen :) Hope this helps - --chris collman 14:31, 3 December 2008 (CST)Chris

Ah - I see now at that these capabilities are new in 1.9.3, which explains why I don't see them in 1.9.2! Christina

Christina and Chris, thanks for your comments. I've reworded tip 2 to hopefully make it clearer, adding the words "From Moodle 1.9.3 onwards, ..."
Chris, regarding using moodle/course:changefullname, I like to do so in the documentation, because the text is the same in every language, so non-English speakers can make use of the English documentation and search the page as you describe. Regarding searching for capabilities, you'll be pleased to hear that there are searches included in many roles pages in Moodle 2.0 :-) --Helen Foster 02:08, 4 December 2008 (CST)
