Frequently Asked Questions
I am Interested in the Bulk Purchase Extension
The Bulk Purchase extension works with Moodle version 2.9 and above.
The Bulk Purchase extension works with the latest version of Edwiser Bridge. (i.e. Version 1.0.2)
If I buy Course 1 in bulk for 4 students. I enroll 1 student. Then from your Enroll Student page, I purchase another product, Course 2 and add it to my Course 1 group. Now I enroll 2 more students. So will the 1st student be enrolled in Course 2?
Yes, student 1 will automatically be enrolled in Course2 when you purchase it and add it to the group Course1. All students enrolled in the group will be enrolled in the newly purchased course.
If a student purchases Course1, then the admin enrolls the student in a group using the enroll student page. Then if the admin unenrolls the student from the group, will the student still have access to the course?
Yes, since the student initially purchased the course himself, he will just be unenrolled from the group but will not be unenrolled from the course.
When I go to purchase a product from the Enroll Student page, why am I not able to choose the quantity of the product? Why is there a default quantity already mentioned there?
The default quantity is the number of seats you have in the group to which you are trying to add the new Product to. If you have purchased 5 seats in Course1, which has now become Group Course1, and you are adding Course2 to Group Course1 then you will need to purchase 5 seats in Course2 as well as all your students in Group Course1 need to be enrolled in Course2 as well.
I have some license related questions
Every license you purchase is valid for one year, during which you will receive free support and updates. After the license expires you will still be able to use the plugin, but will not receive support or updates. To continue receiving support and updates, you will have to renew the license at a discounted rate, which is 50% of the extension price.
The license is active on the staging site. I now want to activate it on my live site. What should I do?
Each license can be used only on a single website. If you are already using the license on your staging site and want to now use it on your live site, go to Edwiser Bridge → Settings → Licenses and deactivate the plugin from your staging site. Now use the same license key on your live site.
Sometimes the license key does not get activated because the ” curl_exec ” PHP file is not enabled in your WordPress. Once you have enabled this file your license key will be activated.
I forgot to tick the Enrol Me checkbox while completing the purchase, how do I enrol myself in the course?
You can enrol yourself just as you would any other user. Click on the Enrol Students link which you get in the email sent to you and enter your own details to enrol yourself. A counter will display the number of seats available.
