There are three ways participants can be enrolled on a course:
- Manual enrolment
- Self enrolment
- Guest access
Guest access, of course, requires little effort other than to set the course up to accept guest access.
Self enrolement allows participants to enroll without interacting with teacher or administrator. However, although participants are able to enrol by themselves courses are frequently set-up with an enrolment key which the teacher will have to provide.
Manual enrolement requires most effort from teachers as they have to add all participants to the course manually.
