How to Create Meta Link in Course

Note: You need a Manager role before you can perform this action.

This will allow you to have multiple sections of a course in One Moodle course site instead of individual, separate ones. This can be an alternative way of setting up a category enrolment where one course with payment enrollment is linked with the rest of the courses within the category to allow one-time enrollment of the whole category.


In case Meta Link is done for category enrolment with payment, ensure that the main course paypal enrollment has been setup.

Step 1: Log in as the site administrator of your site.



Step 2: On the upper left part of the home page, click on   the icon then choose the Site administration option.




Step 3: From the drop-down list, select Plugins--> Enrolments.



Step 4. From the Manage enrol plugins Page find the Course meta link from the list of enrolment plugins.



Step 5. Enable button. If the enable button has a strike through it, this means it is currently disabled. Click the enable button to remove the strike and enable.



Step 6: Go to the course you want to add the Meta Link

Step 7: On the upper left part of the home page, click on   the icon then choose the Course administration option.



Step 8: From the drop-down list, select Users--> Enrolment methods




Step 9: Select Add method and click Course meta link from the drop-down list. Upon clicking Course meta link, you will be automatically transferred to the next step.






Step 10: Choose the course you want the current course to be linked by selecting the course (with Paypal enrolment, if applicable) from the Link course section drop-down list. Once done, click Add method.



You have now created a Meta link.
