We believe it is MOST definitely worth it. Our plugin will instantly take the student to the course page once they enter the proper code. It will also generate codes for each group which should be used if a teacher wants to separate out kids by hours etc. Enter in a group code and you will be enrolled plus added to that group instantly from the homepage.
In order for the student to "see" the enrollment form after logging into your site you must make "Default home page for users" set to "Site" in the site administration pages. Do a search for it and make sure it doesn't say Dashboard or User Preference. You want Site if you are using Fordson and Easy Enrollment.
See the image below. Navigation is where you will see the setting I referenced above.
PS. The other thing to keep in mind is that once you install Easy Enrollment, you must activate it at the site level. Then for each course you must add it as an enrollment method at the course level. On github we added a script that you can download and use on your site. This will add Easy Enrollment as a method for each and every course. Once that is done your entire moodle site can benefit from the new super easy method to enroll students!
Basically, you can download this page(or the whole plugin) and upload the files (or just activate.php) to moodle root/enrol/easy/ put it in the easy folder.
Login as site admin and visit: http://yourmoodlesite.com/enrol/easy/activate.php Then wait for the page to finish spinning. It will be a blank screen but you can then go back to your site homepage and you will notice that every course has the easy enrollment method activated and added.
