3. Groups and enrolment keys

You may wish to run the same course with several supported cohorts either at the same time or in successive groups, if the course content remains the same.

Use the groups function to set up each cohort, which will need a title, a cohort code, a description and a cohort enrolment key.

Create groups

Go to Course administration – OpenLearners – Groups

Click on ‘create group’

Give the group a name, an ID number, a description and an enrolment key. Try not to make the enrolment key easy to guess. Save the changes.

You can edit the group details by clicking on ‘edit group settings’.
