Credit Enrolment for Moodle

While there are existing solutions to sell courses in moodle, they only cover the requirements to a certain extent: Some of the solutions (e.g. the PayPal and Stripe extensions) work great when courses are sold to individuals. Other solutions (e.g. integrations with courseware, woocommerce etc.) are much more feature rich and provide the full e-commerce experience, including seo, many billing options, invoicing, discounts etc. However, the implementation, maintenance and running cost of such a solution is a lot higher.

Our solution targets medium sized companies who want to sell their courses to business clients (instead of individuals) by introducing a very simple credit system. Business clients can buy a certain number of credits using the existing payment/invoicing processes already in place at all customers (not within moodle). These credits can be assigned to users in moodle (manually or via upload) and then used to “buy” courses. Thus, implementation is basically done in minutes.

Credit enrolment is built as a lightweight enrolment plugin and is available for free here in the Plugins directory.


Key features:

  • store credits in the user’s profile
  • assign a price (=number of credits required) for a course
  • enrol into the course by deducting the required credits from the user who enrols (only if enough credits are available)

Example configurations can be seen on http://moodle.bdecent.de


Gamification: Rewarding users with XP Enrolment for Level Up

The plugin can also be used with a small add-on to reward users by letting them use their experience points (XP) collected using the popular Level Up Plugin to buy courses. In addition to the motivational effect of gamification, you can now incentivize users for their efforts (=XP) by allowing them to enrol respectively “buy” additional courses using their XP. The features of this plugin are:

  • use your Level Up Experience Points as currency
  • assign a price (=number of experience points required) for a course
  • enrol into the course by deducting the required experience points from the user who enrols

Example configurations can be seen on http://moodle.bdecent.de – please let us know if you are interested, and we're happy to help.

    Hey, we've been using your plugin in our moodle page and it works great. Recently we've encountered a bug and we are not quite sure how to fix it. When you manually add a User as an Admin, the User has 0 Credits assigned to his profile but is still able to purchase courses, which circumvents the credit entry fee.. Would you mind looking into this? Thank you very much in advance!

    Hi Philipp, happy to learn that you like our plugin! Can you please explain in more detail the problem you have on the bug tracker (linked above) or via e-Mail (support@bdecent.de) – ideally with some screenshots or even a demo account – if possible. Like most contributers, we think that the comments section is not a good place for support. I'm not sure at the moment that I understand you correctly, i.e. what you mean by adding a user; adding to the system? adding to a course? Please also let us know which version of moodle you are using. Thanks, Stefan
