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:

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
