Having 6th-12th grade students enroll themselves into courses is the standard enrollment method that is recommended for teachers. Through a simple enrollment code, students gain access to your course as well as are automatically organized into groups based on their class period.
Before you begin...
Step 1: Verify "Self-Enrollment" is enabled on your course
You should have 3 enrollment methods exactly as shown above. If you have additional methods or anything named differently, delete them by clicking on the trash can to the right of the method you need to delete. If you don't have an option called "Self-Enrollment (Student)," you can add this by clicking on the bottom left dropdown for "Add Method"
Step 2: Set Up Random Course Enrollment Code
Step 3: Set Up Groups & Group Enrollment Keys
NISD Standardized formula for Group Enrollment Keys
teacher last name + period number
Smith's 3rd period = smith3
Smith's 4th period = smith4
Ramirez's 7th period = ramirez7
Moodle requires enrollment keys to be a minimum of 5 characters long. If you have a short last name, add 0 or 00 in front of the group period number.
Key's 2nd period = key02
Rey's 4th period = rey04
Nu's 8th period = nu008
Add All Remaining Class Period Groups
Continue repeating Steps 9-12 until you've created a group (and group enrollment key) for every class period you teach that course.
Have a Shared Course With 2 or More Teachers?
Add the teacher's last name to the front of the GROUP Name, as shown. Set up the enrollment key using the regular, standardized formula.
