    Yes,

    For the unenrollment of students it would be much better if you set up the "Unsubscribe users from courses after" setting in the admin area.

    Server -> cleanup

    This was dueing your summer holidays it will unenroll them from all of their courses.

    On the other hand if you wanted to delete them you could do this under:

    Users -> Accounts -> Bulk User Actions

    Then you could select all of the users and delete them..

    We currently have ours set up via our Active Directory so all we need to do at the end of the year is delete all of the accounts from the AD and they no longer exist in moodle.

    You may ask

    There are many great tutorials out there and the one moodle provides done the trick. To start with the first question would be how comfortable are you with AD administration. The work required is very simple but it may take a few minutes to get your head round.

    Basically, long story short you need to do the following:

    Get a CSV with your course codes, course titles using a tool i made which makes it easier to manipulate CSVDE you import it into your active direcory to create Groups in 2 locations.

    You have 1 OU for Students & 1 OU for Staff..

    Example:

    domain.local
    Courses
    Students
    Staff

    In each of these OU's you will have exactly the same group, although using AD User & Computers wont let you make duplicate groups.. CSVDE will because it will use a random SID instead of the specified one in ADUAC..

    Now, what we then do at the beginning of each year, or half way through the year when we import users is we add them to the groups which correspond to their groups. Many students are enrolled on multiple courses so when we do AD Bulk Imports they have large group memberships.

    The next stage is then to configure moodle to talk to your AD via LDAP. This can be done by going to:

    Site Administration -> Users -> Authentication -> Manage Authentication

    Under LDAP server you then need to configure all settings to your needs. It is very simple to follow.

    The bit that threw me to start with was the final stage under Data Mapping in the LDAP server settings.

    Make sure you have the following:

    First Name = givenName
    Surname = sn
    Email Address = mail

    You can add more if you have more entries in your AD.


    Below is a list of my example settings:

    Host URL = ldap://123.123.123.123
    Version = 3
    LDAP Encoding = utf-8

    Hide Passwords = Yes
    Distinguished Name = administrator@domain.local
    Password = Lol... Your password

    User Type = MS Active Directory
    Context = OU=Students,OU=Accounts,DC=domain,DC=local
    Search Subcontexts = Yes (Your Choice)
    Dereference Aliases = No
    User Attribute = sAMAccountName
    Member Attribute = blank
    Member Attributew uses dn = blank
    Object Class = blank

    Force Change Password = No
    Use Standard Change Password Range = Yes
    Password Format = Plain Text
    Password-Change URL = blank

    Expiration = No
    Expiration Warning = 10
    Expiration Attribute = blank
    Grace Logins = No
    Grace Login Attribute = blank

    Create Users Externally = No
    Context For New Users = Blank

    Creators = No

    NTLM SSO we havent got working because of DMZ problems..


    If you need more one to one support send me an email : steven@123solutions.com

    Cheers
