Once the site administrator has 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''. Enrolment plugins included in the standard Moodle are:
+
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.
  
*[[Authorize.net Payment Gateway]]

==Enrolment capabilities==
*[[External database]]
 
*[[Flat file]]
 
*[[IMS Enterprise]] ((from 1.6 onwards)
 
*[[Internal enrolment]] (default method)
 
*[[LDAP enrolment|LDAP]]
 
*[[Paypal]]
 
*[[Moodle Network]] ((from 1.8 onwards)

To set the enrolment method:
 
#Click on Courses in the Site Administration block, then Enrolments.
 
#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 internal enrolment.
 
##Select the default plugin for interactive enrolment (see below).
 
#Click the "Save changes" button.
 
#Click on Edit opposite one of the enrolment plugin(s) you have chosen.
 
#Configure the required settings and click the "Save changes" button.
 
#Repeat Editing until you have edited all the plugins you have enabled.
 
  
==Multi-enrolment==
+
Cohort sync:
From Moodle 1.6 onwards,  multi-enrolment methods are supported, with one plugin set as the default plugin for interactive enrolment.
+
*[[Capabilities/enrol/cohort:config|Configure cohort instances]]
  
==Interactive enrolment==
+
Guest access:
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/guest:config|Configure guest access instances]]
  
Interactive enrolment triggers only when a user tries to enrol on a course. The user has to do something interactively in order to be enrolled, such as clicking "Yes, I do" ([[Internal enrolment]]), or paying some money ([[Authorize.net Payment Gateway]], [[Paypal]]).
+
LDAP enrolments:
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/ldap:manage|Manage LDAP enrol instances]]
  
 +
Manual enrolments:
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/manual:config|Configure manual enrol instances]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/manual:enrol|Enrol users]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/manual:manage|Manage user enrolments]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/manual:unenrol|Unenrol users from the course]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/manual:unenrolself|Unenrol self from the course]]
  
The interactive enrolment plugin for a particular course may be selected on the [[Course_settings#Enrolments|Course settings]] page.
+
Course meta link:
[[Image:generalsetting4.gif|thumb|center|Enrolment section in Course settings]]
+
*[[Capabilities/enrol/meta:config|Configure meta enrol instances]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/meta:selectaslinked|Select course as meta linked]]
  
==Login-time enrolment lookups==
+
PayPal:
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/paypal:config|Configure PayPal enrol instances]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/paypal:manage|Manage enrolled users]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/paypal:unenrol|Unenrol users from course]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/paypal:unenrolself|Unenrol self from the course]]
  
Login-time lookups perform a search of username and passwords against an an external database when a user logs in.  For example, a course may use a [[LDAP authentication|LDAP/AD]] database. You can have several plugins set to perform login-time lookups.
+
Self enrolment:
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/self:config|Configure self enrol instances]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/self:manage|Manage enrolled users]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/self:unenrol|Unenrol users from course]]
 +
*[[Capabilities/enrol/self:unenrolself|Unenrol self from the course]]
  
==Common course settings==
+
Course:
===Welcome to course message===
+
*[[Capabilities/moodle/course:enrolconfig|Configure enrol instances in courses]]
{{Moodle 1.9}}
+
*[[Capabilities/moodle/course:enrolreview|Review course enrolments]]
When users self-enrol in a course, they receive a welcome message via email.
 
*Note: This feature will have a "Send welcome message?" course setting in Moodle 1.9.3
 
===Course enrolment settings===
 
The course administration block "Settings" link has many different [[Course_settings#Enrolments|enrolment options]]. These include setting durations by either a course open/close dates or by a time period for each student, notifications of expiration of enrolment and other settings.
