Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Category enrolments.
Before I deleted it, the previous page said that category enrolments were a legacy feature of Moodle 1.9 and that the preferred way of doing things in Moodle 2 was to use cohorts. I deleted it because I cannot see a relationship between the two. Category enrolments allows us to enrol a user onto multiple courses while cohort enrolment allows us to enrol multiple users onto a single course. Ideally I would like to be able to enrol cohorts onto categories but I cannot get this to work (Sept 2011). If anyone would like to discuss this, please get in touch: Bob Ridge-Stearn, bob.ridge-stearn[at]newman.ac.uk
Category-level enrolments are a legacy feature. When upgrading from 1.9 to 2, they are removed and replaced by cohorts. In addition, any category enrolments you make in Moodle 2 do not affect the courses in that category (properly / at all). See enrolments in 2.0 for more details. --Alex Walker 2 00:14, 12 October 2011 (WST)
