Globally De-activating Portico Enrolments W/C 4th November 2019

Portico enrolments will be globally deactivated in Moodle in the week commencing  4th November 2019.  This is usually done six weeks from the start of each term.

How will this impact students on my course?

  • Students who are already enrolled on a Moodle course WILL continue to have access to their course (s) and WILL NOT be unenrolled.
  • Students enrolling on Portico after the deactivation WILL NOT be automatically enrolled  onto the corresponding Moodle course. Students can still be manually enrolled.
  • Students who leave the course WILL NOT be automatically un-enrollled

For more information, please see the Globally de-activating Portico information page.
