I need to create 1 course. The same course (same content, activities, resources, quizes, etc.) will be offered to different students on different "start date" and "end date".
I need to allow students to enroll the courses by themselves, so I think group feature wouldn't be helpful for this case, besides, i can't define "start date" and "end date" for groups.
My only option is "Duplicated courses"?. This option would get the server full of duplicated information.
Thank you in advance
Moodle records the enrolment start date when they enrol and then uses this as a basis for any automatic un-enrolements if set up.
I do not completely understand what you are trying to achieve as students can just enrol with the group key when you tell them too?
What i need is:
- Create a course. That course must have the option "start date" and "end date". This option is in the enrolment options for a course.
- Allow users to enroll this course by themselves. I mean, the decide if they want to enroll that course.
That is easy. But we tipically offer the same course, with the same content (activities, resources, lessons, etc.) in differents "start date" and "end date" at the same time. I mean, we have different courses with exactly the same content (wich doesn't make sense) in a simultaneous way. It is hard to manage, and we are going out of space in disk because we duplicate courses, and duplicate information.
Humm, I do not think it can be solved without requesting an enhancement where groups as well as enrolment keys have enrolment start and end dates too.
But, and this is my opinion, I think that you are over complicating a solution to a problem by attempting to put in place a technical fix which in fact is really a human one. You need to think to yourself about having the advantage of restricting enrolment on effectively the same course at different date windows. What advantage are you technically gaining?
But if you have time and the different courses are similar, you could break down the content into smaller courses and use wrapper meta-courses, please see http://docs.moodle.org/en/Metacourses
We have exactly the same situation. We have instructor led courses that will be offered on different weeks.
Were you able to resolve this issue for your org? I would like to know if you have any solutions?
any one find a solution for using same course with same content to be apply for different groups, for each group have different "start date" and "end date".
I have a proposal in at Moodle User's Association that would handle this, adding activity start and end options relative to enrollment date/course start date.
Should i be a member in Moodle User's Association to get the solution ?
We are getting close to where we vote on which proposal to submit. Only members can vote so that would help. Becoming a member will not provide you a solution but will give you the option to help participate in deciding what projects get sent on to Moodle for incorporation. Even if selected it will be some time before it gets incorporated as it is a fairly extensive feature.
