What’s impressive about Moodle, is the extent of in-built functionality.
It can be adapted to function as a learning management system for a wide-range of applications; right from K-12 to universities to corporate training websites.
Apart from the conventional teacher-student roles, you can create users in form of parents, instructors, corporate managers and so on.
With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility
On most e-learning websites, the student workflow is quite simple:
Student views a course he/she is interested→ Purchases the course→ Enrols for the course.
On K-12 learning or corporate training websites, there’s a bit of difference:
Parents/Trainers/Educators find a course→ They bulk buy the course→ Enrol several students for the course.
Ummm… problem? Not really.
Moodle provides you two approaches to implement this.
Teachers have the option to enrol several students for a course manually. Similarly, you could create parent or educator roles with similar capabilities.
Administrators have the option enrol several users using a CSV upload option.
Now, you might not want the administrator to handle bulk enrolments always, and might prefer creating parent or corporate trainer roles.
But take note, this might elongate the course purchase cycle.
Every time an interested visitor looks to bulk buy courses, they would need to contact you. You then will need to create a user for them on your Moodle site, and then allow them the capabilities to enol students.
With this approach, trainers, parents and corporate managers are always dependant on you before enrolling students/children/employees for a course.
