Enrolment: Easy Enrollments
The Easy Enrollment plugin generates a 6 digit code for every course and group in your Moodle site. Once activated on your course you can visit the Easy Enrollment Settings page and see all of your enrollment codes. This plugin will also generate QR codes which can be downloaded and printed to use with younger students or in print materials. Upon activation of the Easy Enrollment plugin the Fordson Moodle Theme will display all the necessary forms on the homepage so that students can enter enrollment codes and instantly be taken to the corresponding course.
The QR Code reader requires SSL/HTTPS in order to function. If you do not have SSL then disable the QR code option from the Easy Enrollment settings page.
Dearborn Public Schools is a K-12 school district in Dearborn, Michigan. We serve over 19,000 students in Wayne County and we are big fans of Moodle. We believe our work with Moodle can be of value to the Moodle community and in the spirit of open source we are sharing some of our work. There is no warrenty that this will work on every server with every theme or setup. We use it. It works well. We are sharing it to help others.
NOTE: While this can be made to work with any theme the only theme we will officially support is Fordson. Adding the enrollment form and other functionality needed for other themes would require hacking their code to make the form appear on the homepage. There are many themes out there and they all do things a bit differently. We only use one theme and that is Fordson.
