Manage your participants

Participants is the collective term used for all users who are part of a Moodle space. The list of participants can be accessed by clicking 'Participants' in the navigation drawer to open the Participants page.

  1. Click on the burger icon to open the Navigation Drawer if not already open.
  2. Select ‘Participants’ to open the participants list.

This shows who is enrolled on a course - this list can be searched, filtered and sorted to identify participants. Users with editing rights can access information about course participants (ID number, Email address, department, etc.), manage user enrolment or manage user groups.

Participants can be enrolled on courses in different ways; automatically (from SITS, or using a webgroup), manually by the department or course leader, or can enrol themselves if the Auto-enrolment and/or Self-enrolment method has been made available as an option.

Each participant will appear in the participant list with an image (where available), ID and email address, plus information on what role they have been allocated in this Moodle space, if they are in a group and when they last accessed this Moodle space. The final column reflects their current enrolment status on the Moodle space. Students can only see the columns for the allocated role and group of participants.

Participants can be added to groups, given different roles, and their progress through activities and courses can be followed via completion and participation reports.

Manage multiple users or download participants list

As an alternative to managing participants as described above, there is also the option to select one or more (bulk select) participants on the participants list to then perform an action on the selected participant(s).

1. Select all the participants that you want to perform the same action on by ticking their box in the participants list.

2. In the bottom of the participants list, choose the action you want to perform from the drop-down menu 'With selected users...'.
