Participants and Enrollment

participants iconThe Participants page enables instructors and course staff to easily enroll, view, search for, filter, edit and, delete course participants all from a single page. In earlier versions of the CLE, the course participants could be viewed on a different page and enroll users on another.

After the update to Moodle 3.4, the functionality has improved so now it’s easy to enroll, edit and delete course participants. There are also options to search and filter course participants by period of activity, enrollment method, role group, or status. The participant’s status is clearly displayed so you can easily identfy wheather students are active or suspended in the course. Click the tab above to learn more about the participants page.
