How do I set up a Private: Manual Enrolment class?
Sometimes you might need to run a private class on OpenLearning, where you only want specific people to be able to take your course. In order to do this, you will need the email addresses of all participants you want to enrol in your course.
Follow the steps below to set up a Private: Manual Enrolment class.
Go to Course Setup > General > Classes in your Course > Edit.
Select Private: Manual Enrolment and click Save.
When you're ready to enrol students in your course, go to Administer Learners > Students.
You can enrol students by using their:
- OpenLearning username (if you know it and if they already have an OpenLearning account)
- Email address
If you want to bulk invite students' email addresses, you can do this by clicking Need to enrol multiple students?
Students who already have an OpenLearning account that are invited by their OpenLearning username, will receive the following Welcome Email IF it is ticked in Course Setup > Advanced:
If the Welcome Email is not ticked, students enrolled via username will not receive any emails about their enrolment.
- If you tick Send Email to Students and the user already has an OpenLearning account, they will receive the following email:
- If you tick Send Email to Students and the person does not yet have an OpenLearning account, they will receive the following email:
- If you do not tick Send Email to Students, both existing students and people without OpenLearning accounts will not receive an invitation or enrolment email.
