Manually Enrolling Users into a Course in Moodle

Typically students are automatically enrolled in any Moodle course(s) for which they have registered… but, occasionally, it is necessary to manually enroll a student or instructor. Once you’ve determined that manually enrolling a user is your best option, here is how to proceed:

  1. Expand the Nav Drawer block in your course
  2. Under the course name, click the Participants link

Click the Enroll users button in the upper-right corner of the Participants screen to open a pop-up window.

Use the Select Users box to Search by the Clackamas email/username or their name in Moodle.

Click on a User’s name to add them to a running list above the search box; you can add multiple users at once to a course.

Can’t find someone? The user may not have a Moodle profile yet and will need to force-create one by logging directly into Moodle for the first time at online.clackamas.edu.

See multiple people with the same name? Double check the displayed email address and use the one in your roster or the account NOT marked with OLD or UNUSED following the last name.

From the Assign role drop down menu, select the appropriate role in Moodle.

Click the Enrol selected users and cohorts button to apply these enrollment additions.

NOTE: Don’t mind the Australian spelling of Enroll/Enrol. :-)
