With this plugin you are able to invite users into your course even if they don't have a user acount in your Moodle installation.
The general settings give you the control what an invited user can and can't.

The settings in short:

  • Delete the invited account as soon it is logged out.
  • Delete the invited account within a range of days.
  • Define a limit how often a invitation link can be used.
  • Define a role the invited user should assigned to in the course he is invited to.
  • Define a system role the invited user should assigned to globally to give you more possibilities for restrictions.
  • Define a bunch of urls to prevent some actions which can not be prevented by moodle permissions.
  • Allow invited user to use a single name as alias.
  • Define an optional policy consent.

    This sounds amazing, but where should I see the opportunity to create an invitation? I've installed and enabled it in admin settings but I can't see how to do it in a course.

    Hi Matt, this plugin is deactivated by default. You have to go to the plugin settings "Website admin / Plugins / Local plugins / Invitation" and activate it.

    Hi Andreas. Thanks for the quick response. It is activated, it must be something else...

    Hi Matt, if you don't use a boost based theme but a classic theme the link to create an invitation should be on the left tree below "My courses".
