From enrollment to booking method

FELIX 10-031

What you need to know

Using the booking method, students are automatically entered as course participants when the course starts. You can choose between booking the course with or without password protection and can restrict the booking period.
The booking method can replace enrollment in a group, as long as you do not use a limited number of participants or waiting list or other group-dependent course element configurations.
In the long run, the booking method simplifies course handling for you and your students. Ideally, you make the switch when you update your course for a new semester.
