I'm just starting with Moodle and I chose to go directly with the 2.0 version.
A lot has been written about meta-courses but I have the feeling it does not work the same way in 2.0 and I cannot find any documentation about that.
In the enrolment plugins, I found cohorts which is pretty handy and "course meta links" which also seems interesting but I have no idea how to use it.
I kind of understood meta-course principles but cannot find it in Moodle 2.0.
Could you please help me on those course meta links and how to set a course as meta-course in 2.0 ?
Thanks a lot.
in Moodle 1.9 we have too many 'footloose' students who are not in the right 'home class' so the fixed Metacourse link is problematic.
What is not clear for me in the Moodle 2.0 version is whether the 'sync' will remove as well as add students.
Creating and linking metacourses by enabling the course meta links enrolment plugin in Moodle 2.0+ is described here...
When trying this teachers could access the option Course metalink under Enrolment Method but when it came to the next step Link course : Choose... in the drop down box no list of courses appeared.
It would seem teachers did not have the necessary privilege.
|Course meta link|
|Configure meta enrol instancesenrol/meta:config||Allow|
|Select course as meta linkedenrol/meta:selectaslinked||Not set|
Select course as metalinked needs to be set to ALLOW
This may be deliberate but seems odd that they can configure yet not select.
