Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Category enrolments.
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:
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.
