Just installed Moodle... SIMs Course integration?!
We are currently looking into alternatives to our costly paid VLE provider and I am starting to play around with an onsite Moodle configuration, something our head of ICT has used in the past.
I have now got Moodle installed under Linux, stuck on a basic theme that I think (with a few tweaks) could suit our needs fine and have got users authentication and sync sorted via LDAP. The next step I am looking at is how to get users populated into groups (or cohorts? not too sure on the difference in Moodle) and then on to courses. At present we have full integration and wondered if this can be done (I imagine it can) for free (possibly not) in Moodle. Not bothered to bothered about write-back, profiles, registration etc. just want the basics of students being populated into the correct classes so teachers can view them correctly.
Any help and advice on how people achieve this would be very much appreciated.
