We are currently using Moodle 1.9 and are preparing for a move to Moodle 2.2.
In Moodle 1.9 we have several category level enrolments which give people like the Assessment Administrators or subject librarians teacher access to an entire category (our categories are set up in a hierarchy of Faculty and Department).
From what I can see, the category level access in Moodle 2.2 is there for legacy purposes only, so I am planning to remove this access level in advance of our migration before adopting the new cohort based system.
I've created a cohort and given it a context consistant with one of our categories. I've then populated it with users...
... it is here that I have come unstuck however!
As far as I can tell, teachers within this category can now add the cohort to their courses - however I want to be able to do this automatically (rather than have to rely on staff having done this). I'm also unsure of what role people in the cohort will have - I don't see anywhere that I can specify this.
I'm sure I'm missing something that is obvious to those with more Moodle 2 experience - any help would be grately appreciated!
BTW: I've also got a problem with my cohorts not displaying once they have been created... anyone else got this problem?
