e-Learning courses are all about sharing your knowledge online with others, isn’t it?
The more the number of enrolled students, the better!
Having a certain number of students in courses indirectly means that much amount of gradebook data for you to analyze. But what about the data of students who have completed or about to complete their courses?
Here’s where Suspending Users in Bulk in Moodle enters the picture.
But Why Suspend Over Unenroll?
There’s a need for universities to keep a track of a student’s performance records across semesters. A similar need is felt in personalized courses. In this scenario, you might want to retain gradebook data for a student’s reference in the future.
By suspending the users instead of unenrolling them, you can preserve their data. This data can be either used for inspection in future years or even for analyzing student performance data.
Suspending one or two users isn’t much of a task. But, what if the number of such students is big? If there is indeed a way, wouldn’t it end up taking a lot of time?
Here’s where I’d break it to you. Suspending users in bulk from your Moodle courses is not as tough as you think!
Here’s a quick step-by-step tutorial I’ve prepared for you.

Step #1 – CREATE LIST OF USERS
Before you can suspend users in Bulk, it’s important for you to create a list of such users. There are two ways you can do this.
