How to Enrol a student in a Moodle course

In order for a student to access the Moodle Courses, the users will need to be added to the Course. This is called Enrolling them into the course. Once the User Accounts and Permissions are set up in the system, the Moodle administrator can enrol them into the course. The following article will explain how to enrol users into a Moodle 2.3 course.

Note! Moodle uses the British spelling spelling of Enrol. The US english spelling is Enroll.
