Managing Enrollments in the Moodle plugins

Another feature in the Moodle 2..3 plugins is the Enrollment plugin. The Enrollment plugin allows the administrator to enable or disable, edit the settings, or uninstall an Enrolment plugin altogether. Common enrolments that are enabled are the Self Enrollment, Cohort Sync, Manual Enrolment, and the Guest access. If the administrator wants to disable the Guest plugin completely, the plugin can be disabled in the Manage Enrol Plugins section of the Moodle Administrator. These are the steps to disable an enrolment plugin.

Disabling and enabling Enrolment plugins

  1. Log into the Moodle Dashboard
  2. enrollment-plugin-1-select

    Navigate to the Site administration > Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins in the settings on the left.

    On the Manage Enrol plugins page, the list of enabled and disabled plugins will show. To disable an enrolement plugin, click the hide icon. Below is a brief description of what each column is for.
