Subscribing a site user to groups, events/exams and course sessions
There are more than one way through which a site user can get subscribed/enrolled to one or more groups, exams and course sessions. User subscription/enrollment can happen in the form of
- Self subscription (enrollment)
- Subscribed by the administrator (site/group/exam/session administrator)
Self subscription is possible only if the administrator allows for self subscription of a group, exam or course session. It is upto the administrator to configure them as either self discoverable (and self enrollable) or as private which allows them to selectively subscribe (or invite) users.
For the first case of self discovery and self subscription, the user would need to select the group/exam/session of interest and then use the enroll/subscribe button to subscribe himself/herself into that entity. This action then makes them as an enrolled member. For more details refer to Group Self Join, Self Enrollment in Exam, Self Enrollment in Sessions. For the second case (subscription by the administrator), the administrator has the flexibility to either
- Select a group/exam/session and then select one or more users to subscribe (This allows for multiple users to be subscribed to one entity at one time). For more details refer to Managing Group Members, Adding Candidates in Exam, Managing Learners in Course Session.
- Select one user and then subscribe him/her to one or more groups, exams and sessions (This allows for subscribing one user to multiple entities at one time). This article describes this process in more detail.
To know more about how to create site users refer to the User Management article.
