Template:Moodle 2.0 Cohorts, or site-wide groups, enable all members of a cohort to be enrolled in a course in one action, either manually or synchronised automatically.

Creating a cohort

To create a cohort manually

  1. Access Site administration > Users > Accounts > Cohorts
  2. Click the Add button
  3. Complete the form and click the 'Save changes' button
  4. Follow the assign link opposite the cohort name in the list of available cohorts
  5. Select potential users from the list then click the Add button

To synchronise cohort members with course participants, the cohort enrolment plugin should be enabled in Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins.

Enrolling a cohort in a course

In order to actually enrol users from a Cohort into courses the Cohort-Sync' Enrollment plugin needs to be added to then enrollment methods for the course. The Administrator will first need to enable the Cohort-Sync' enrollment plugin site wide (Site administration > Plugins > Enrollments) and then add it to the required Course (Course administration > Users > Enrollment Methods). At this stage the Cohort-Sync instance for the course is edited and the appropriate Cohort selected. The role to which the Cohort users are assigned is also selected at this point (typically Student).

Visiting the Course administration > Users > Enrolled Users page will show users enrolled via the Cohort-Sync plugin.

Note that, by default, a teacher cannot add this plugin to their course. It needs to be configured by an Administrator.
