Enrolment, or 'enrollment', is the process of marking users as participants in the course, that includes both students and teachers. At the same time users are usually give a role in the course which specifies what they are allowed to do.
Moodle provides a number of ways of managing course enrolment, called enrolment plugins. Click the links below for further information.
- Manual enrolment - the administrator or course teacher adds users manually
- Self enrolment - a user can choose to enrol him/herself into a course
- Course meta link - users enrolled in other courses are given automatic access
- Guest access - users can view course materials but not participate
In addition, the Publish as LTI tool enrolment plugin, together with the LTI authentication plugin, allows remote users on a different site to access selected courses and activities.
