Participant management: Self-enrollment (set/change course passwords)

IMT HilfeWiki - das Wiki

Using the registration form Self-enrolment participants can register themselves for the course in question.

The lecturer can announce the password to the course in his lecture, by e-mail or via PAUL.
This tutorial explains how to enable and disable self-enrollment and how to change the password.

Activate self-enrollment[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

Note: The ZIM activates the self-enrollment on request and sets a password.

Self-enrollment will be renamed to Registration participant for participants and - if necessary - Registration lecturer for lecturers.
If you want to change the existing password, please read on below!
This part of the instructions assumes that self-enrollment has not yet been activated.
Overview of enrollment methods with inactive self-enrollment

In the overview you will find the following registration methods:
  • Manual enrolment (always active) (1): This method allows lecturers & assistants, participants and staff to enrol by hand. Please do NOT make any changes!
  • Self-enrolment (student) (2): This method can be edited/activated and allows students to enrol themselves in the course.
  • Add method (3): This menu item allows you to enable a new/additional self-enrolment method

The self-enrollment overview appears. Here there are many setting options, but only four of these are really important for activation.

  1. Description (1): Here you set the name of the registration. We recommend Participant registration as title. This title will then be displayed to the logon participants.
  2. Allow existing enrolments (2): The field must be set to YES for the enrolment method to be active.
  3. Enrollment key (3): This field must be set to YES so that the enrollment method is active.
    You can display the password via the eye symbol.
    Empty means registration without password (any PANDA user can join the course).
    ATTENTION: If you save your PANDA password in the browser, the browser may automatically fill in the field. In this case, please change it!
  4. Welcome text (4): If desired, you can leave a welcome message for the newly registered participants.
  5. Finally, please click on "Save changes".

Further settings[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • Enrolments (max.): Maximum number of people who can enrol using this enrolment method. There can be more people in the course (e.g. via manual registration or other self-enrolment methods).

OPEN courses[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

By "Open Courses" we mean PANDA courses in which participants can register themselves without a password. You can create them by activating a Self Enrollment that has no password. You can find detailed instructions here.
