Please refer to these notes before editing this page.

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) but it is a legacy solution for those sites which have upgraded from Moodle 1.9. The recommended option is to use Cohorts instead.

Settings for category enrolment

  • Go to the category into which you wish to enrol users.
  • In the Settings box,click Assign roles. The list of possible roles you can assign will appear:
