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. There are performance issues with category enrolments. See http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-23840.

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
