Once you have set up [[Authentication|user authentication]], [[Add/edit courses|created some courses]] and assigned teachers to them, the next thing to consider is [[Enrolment|course enrolment]] i.e. assigning users the role of student in a course.
 
  
Moodle provides a number of ways of managing course enrolment, called ''enrolment plugins''. There are contributed plugins and standard Moodle plugins include:
+
To set an enrolment method:
 +
#Click on ''Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins''.
 +
#Click on the ''enable'' checkboxes opposite your chosen enrolment plugin(s). If you wish, you may choose more than one enrolment method. For example if you have some courses which students must pay for and some free courses, you can use PayPal and self enrolment.
 +
#Click the "Save changes" button.
 +
#Click the settings link opposite the enrolment plugin(s) you have chosen.
 +
#Configure the required settings and click the "Save changes" button.
 +
#Repeat until you have edited all the plugins you have enabled.
 +
 
 +
The order in which enrolment plugins are applied can be set. This may be important for some plugins. It also affects the order of enrolment options on the course enrol page.

To set an enrolment method:

  2. Click on the enable checkboxes opposite your chosen enrolment plugin(s). If you wish, you may choose more than one enrolment method. For example if you have some courses which students must pay for and some free courses, you can use PayPal and self enrolment.
  3. Click the "Save changes" button.
  4. Click the settings link opposite the enrolment plugin(s) you have chosen.
  5. Configure the required settings and click the "Save changes" button.
  6. Repeat until you have edited all the plugins you have enabled.

The order in which enrolment plugins are applied can be set. This may be important for some plugins. It also affects the order of enrolment options on the course enrol page.
