Moodle- Editing Roster Associations


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

Roster associations

Rosters are usually associated with a course when the course is created.  This document provides instructions for editing the roster associations after the course has been created. 

1. Under the settings block, click Users.

2. Click Enrollment Methods.
3.  If Manual enrollments isn't present (as shown below), select it from the the Add method menu. 
3a. If you just added Manual enrollments, you will also need to select the correct term, and then click Next. Skip to step 5.
Enrollment Methods

4. If Manual enrollments was already listed, click the edit icon Edit Button for Manual enrollments, located on the far right.
5.  Your screen will look like the image below.  Rosters already added to the course are on the left.  On the right, you'll see your courses.  If you cannot see your course, click Search for a course, and follow the prompts.
Adding Associations
6. To add a roster association, click the course or section in the Catalog column and then click Add.
7. To remove a roster association, click the course or section in the Associations column and then click Remove.
8. Click next to go to the confirmation page. To save changes, click Add Enrollment.

  • A roster may not be associated with multiple Moodle courses simultaneously. If you're having trouble adding a roster, make sure that it is not associated with another course already.
  • TAs are not included in roster associations and should be added manually. See 22224.

How to check if your roster association worked

Go to "Assign Roles" link in your administration box. Here you can click on a role and see if the correct participants are added into your ecow2 course. If so, you have successfully associated rosters. If not, delete unwanted participants (if needed) and re-do the steps above to associate roster.

Note that some Moodle servers run the roster updates periodically. On those servers, it may take a number of hours before your students appear in the roster. Contact your Moodle administrator if you are unsure about the roster in your course.
