There are a large number of course enrolment methods available with Totara Learn. Before they can be used all enrolment method plugins must be enabled by a Site Administrator from the quick-access menu by going to Plugins > Enrolments > Manage enrol plugins.
Each course can enrol users using different enrolment methods, as enrolment methods are configured at the course level. The enrolment methods can be hidden and have their settings changed and reordered.
