Talk:Course meta link
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Course meta link.
One little (not so little) annoyance with the meta-link enrol is that here and there we use different nomenclatures to point to them (linked and meta, child and meta)... and I always end looking to the Docs or code to see which one is every one. I'd suggest to move to something like source/target or, alternatively, at very least, define clearly what is the child course and what's the meta course. Of course that applies to both Docs and Moodle UI.
In other words. I've not idea about the best alternative, but can confirm that the current situation leads me to confusion every time I look (not often, surely that contributes to the confusion, be warned).
Surely this is something that can wait for 3.0 or so, not critical at all.

Agreed - I was using "linked courses" for the docs (and screencast) and have kept away form child and meta. I think we should abandon child and parent (as I always thought they should have been the other way around anyway) and the word meta doesn't mean much to someone non-technical like myself. Source and Target are fine - we just all need to agree. --Mary Cooch (talk) 18:02, 29 April 2015 (AWST)
