'''Metacourses''' are courses which take their enrolments from courses i.e. for every course 'enrolled' on the metacourse, all students in the course are enrolled in the metacourse.

Each time a student enrols on (or unenrols from) a course, s/he is enrolled/unenrolled from the metacourse(s) (although it doesn't happen immediately - it may take an hour to show up).
==Metacourse setup==
Teachers are able to choose whether a course is a metacourse via the "Is this a metacourse?" (yes/no) checkbox in the [[course/edit|course settings]]. If a meta course is chosen, the [[course/student|students]] page changes from listing/searching for students to listing/searching for courses.
==Metacourse usage==
Metacourses may be used in a variety of ways. For example, consider a course C with units C1, C2, C3 and C4.
*Scenario 1: C is a metacourse with C1, C2, C3 and C4 as normal courses. Students enrolling on C1 or  C2 or C3 or C4 are automatically enrolled on C.
*Scenario 2: C1, C2, C3 and C4 are metacourses with C as a normal course. Students enrolling on C are automatically enrolled on C1, C2, C3 and C4. (Please see the diagram below.)
