Set up self-enrolment in groups

Self-enrolment allows users to enroll in groups on their own. Use this option when you want users to choose their own group members or to be a part of a group on a topic that interests them.

Users can self-enrol in groups by clicking the Choose Group link beside the name of a group category set up for self-enrolment. A link displays at the top of the user’s Groups page when self-enrolment is available.

If a group is full, the Members column displays the total number of group members in red with "(Full)" beside it. If a learner wants to leave a group that they self-enroled in before the date specified by the Set Self Enrolment Expiry Date option (if selected), on the My Groups page, learners can click Leave Group if the option is configured.

Clicking the capacity marker or the total listed in the Members column opens the Group Members pop-up, which contains a list of current group members. You cannot click empty groups.

  2. Enter a Category Name and Description.
