- Registration Process: Arlo to Moodle

- Website and Registration Process
The following article explains how to set up an eLearning course by creating an online activity/event in Arlo that links to a Moodle course.
Once setup, you'll be able to promote and sell access to the Moodle course through your Arlo website pages, and then track registrants' progress through your course from within Arlo, all without needing to access Moodle
This option can be used for selling and tracking access to an on demand videos or access to resources, right through to a full course with Moodle objects and activities.

- Ensure all Arlo for Moodle requirements are met.
- Create a Moodle Course if you do not have one setup already.
- Learn more on how to create your own Moodle Course.
- Create an online activity in Arlo to connect your Moodle course. This will allow your registrants to register for your OnDemand or eLearning courses just like any other course or event on your Arlo website pages.
- At the Content step, enter any URL (website address e.g. http://...). This is normally where the registrants will be directed to complete the activity, however, Moodle will be sending these details to each registrant.
- At the Registrations step, choose the appropriate registration method. If the course has a charge, choose Order Process. If it is free, choose Quick Registration.
- Important: At the Communication step, as Moodle sends the communication to course registrants with a link to access the course, edit the email to not include a link to the activity. We recommend something similar to the example pictured below. (Remove [OnlineActivityURL] from the email template).
- Open the Course in Moodle.
- Select Course Administration from the menu.
- If you want to link to an individual Arlo Online Activity refer to the Users > Enrolment Methods
- Note: Use this method if you only want to send out the Moodle content for one online activity in Arlo.
- If you want to link to an Arlo template refer to the Associate Arlo Template.
- Note: Use this method if you only want to send out the Moodle content for all events (Upcoming, In-Progress, and Online Activities) linked to a template in Arlo.
Users > Enrolment Methods (Connecting an Individual Arlo Online Activity)
- From the Add Method drop-down selection, choose Arlo Enrolment.
- From the Type of event drop-down, select Online Activity.
- Select the Course Code from the Online Activity drop-down you would like to link to the Moodle Course.
- From the Active menu select Yes.
- From the Assigned Group select Create New Group. You also have the option to either set the assigned group to None or Select an Existing Group. Learn more about Moodle groups.
- Send Course Welcome Message should be enabled. This will send the Arlo registrant their course enrolment email.
- Leave Custom Welcome Message blank to use the default email template. A custom welcome message may be added as plain text or Moodle-auto format, including HTML tags and multi-lang tags. Learn more by pressing the help text icon (?).
- If your course has a restricted course duration from the date of registration, enter this duration in the Enrolment Duration field. Check Enable and select the variable and metric e.g. 6 Weeks.
- If you want registrants to be notified when enrolment duration has expired, select Yes from the Notify User of Enrolment Expiration drop-down.
- Press Add method.
Associate Arlo Template (Connecting an Arlo Template)
