Setup Instructions

Before you can use Course credit enrolment, you have to do the following steps:

  1. Create a custom profile field of the type "input field" and name it e.g. "Credits" (can be anything you want)
  2. Set the custom profile field to "locked" to avoid that users change the amount of credits themselves
  3. Add the credits to that field either via the csv user upload, manually or via a webservice
  4. Go to Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins and make sure Course Credit Enrolments is enabled
  5. On the same screen, open the settings of the enrolment method and choose the profile field you've created in the first setting "Profile field mapping".
  6. To use the plugin, add Course credit enrolment as an enrolment method to a course and set the "cost" of the course in the enrolment instance's settings.


  1. You can add several instances in the same course to create different prices e.g. for different enrolment dates, different cohorts and different roles.
  2. We've created a demo course which you can have a look on our demo site:
  3. The pro version has not been released yet, but will provide support for cohort based credits, reports on transactions and accounts as well as subscriptions. If you are interested, let us know!

We hope you like the plugin. If you have any questions, please let us know!
