    moodle groups

    the ict coordinator wants me to create groups in moodle the same as the ict class sets. I find moodle very confusing and not at all intuitive.

    just having a look at this and hoping someone can put me straight on these thoughts I have.

    It looks like I have to create the separate groups for different courses but from the school point of view these are the same sets and I can't just make a group and then assign it to different courses. is this correct?

    as far as enrolment goes, the "proper" way would be to create the group, give it an enrolment password and then the kids enrol themselves and it puts them in the right group and enrols them on the course. is this correct?

    I tried to update a user to put him in a group with a csv file with just username and group1 columns but it didn't seem to work.

    thanks.

    You need ID, course ID and Group ID if you use a CSV. We did this for our ICT teacher, was a real faff but now I know it works I can shunt the CSV making on to them. The other way would be to enroll the kids into the course and get the teacher to organise the groups.

    If you want to use CSV the fields are username password email firstname lastname course1 group1
    where course1 is the shortname of the course you want to enrol them in and group1 is the group you want to enrol them in.
    The alternative you mention is group enrolment key - look at this post here Moodle Blog

    If you use DB enrollment I have a script that puts them into groups when they enrol on the course. We tried using group enrollment keys but teachers found them too confusing.

    link it to SIMS and have it pull the info directly from there, lots less hassle: SchoolsICT - enabling 21st century learning
