Figure 16-5. Choosing an enrollment plug-in

Flat/IMS Enterprise file Like the upload users tool, which we covered in a previous section, these methods allow you to import user enrollment data via a specially formatted text file. IMS Enterprise file format is described in a help file, and flat file format is described on the flat file settings page. Internal enrollment This is the default enrollment method, as described above. LDAP You can use an LDAP server to manage enrollment as well as manage authentication. Setup instructions can be found in the Moodle documentation. To set the enrollment method: 1. Click on Courses in the Site Administration block, then Enrollments. 2. On the enrollments page, as shown in Figure 16-5, click the enable checkbox opposite your chosen enrollment plug-in. As for authentication methods, you may choose more than one enrollment method, if you wish. For example, if you have some courses that students must pay for and some free courses, you can use PayPal and internal enrollment. 3. Select the default plug-in for interactive enrollment. This is when a user has to do something interactively in order to be enrolled, such as clicking “Yes, I do” (internal enrollment) or paying some money (Authorize.net Payment Gateway, PayPal). 4. Click the “Save changes” button. 5. Click on Edit opposite the enrollment plug-in(s) you have chosen. 6. Configure the required settings and click the “Save changes” button.
