How do I manage enrollments?

Managing enrollments with Admin app.

A user's enrollment allows them access to a course for a specified period of time. Once the enrollment has reached its end date, the enrollment expires.

There are a several ways to edit user enrollments:

  • Create a New enrollment
  • Edited an existing enrollment in a course (updating dates, status, role,etc)
  • Move an enrollment from one course to another (courses must share the same Master)
  • Use the bulk update feature to update multiple enrollments in a course.
  1. Open the Users tool from the Main Menu.
  2. Click the user's User ID.
  3. Select Enrollments from the tabs bar.

Add a New Enrollment

  1. Click New [plus sign] and provide:
    • The course name or ID to search the current domain (required); to broaden your search, check the Search all domains box.
    • The desired Role (required).  (Teacher-Owner or Student)
    • The desired Status (required).
    • A Start Date and an End Date for the enrollment.
  2. Click Save.

Edit user's enrollment in a course

Note: If a user is unable to find a course, most likely their enrollment end date has passed. This means they are no longer enrolled in the course and it has been removed from their homepage.

A course's end date is unrelated to a user's enrollment start/end date in a course. By default, a user's enrollment end date is set to the course end date when they are initially enrolled.

  • Select the Enrollment ID of the user that needs to be changed.
  • Click Edit.
