Participant management: Open course

IMT HilfeWiki - das Wiki
Die deutsche Version finden Sie auf der Seite Teilnehmerverwaltung: Offener Kurs

By "Open Courses" we mean PANDA courses in which participants can register themselves without a password. You create these by activating a self-enrollment that does not have the password.
This guide shows you how to add a self-enrollment and set it up accordingly without a password.

What needs to be done?[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • Call up the desired course
  • Call up settings (gear wheel)

  • Select and add self-enrollment

Step-by-step instructions[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Call up settings and select enrollment methods[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • You are now in the enrollment methods. The manual enrollment is the default setting.
This method allows lecturers & assistants, participants and employees to enrol manually. Please do NOT make any changes!
  • So under "Add method" click on the Self-enrollment.

Now a new window of self-enrollment opens, in which you can make many settings:

  • Designation (1): Here you set the name of the application. We recommend Registration Participant as title. This will then be displayed to the person registering.
  • Allow existing enrolments/ Allow self-enrolment (2): Both fields must be set to YES so that the enrolment method is active and participants can enrol themselves.
  • Enrolment key (3): This is the crucial field that you must leave blank so that a registration without password is possible. This allows any PANDA user to join the course.
If you would like to assign a password, you will find instructions here.
  • Enrollment start/end (4): Here you can set a period of time during which participants can register.
