Moodle - Metacourses the easy option for Primaries?
I find assigning pupils to courses is a major pain in the neck in primary schools without external class/pupil enrollement databases.
But I'm looking at metacourses and I hoping this will do the job :)
If I create a dummy "child" course for each teaching class and assign all the pupils for that class onto that dummy "child" course then I can then just create a real course as metacourse and just associate the right "child" course to this metacourse and all the pupils assigned to the "child" course will be enrolled into the real course?
e.g Create a dummy course - call it Child Year 6
Assign all year 6 pupils to Child Year 6
Create a proper course Learn How to Scratch
Set Learn How to Scratch as a metacourse
Associate Child Year 6 to Learn How to Scratch
Does it work like this?
Answers only from people who've done this please :)
Or if you wrote the handbook :)
