Organizational Clusters

Creating Cluster Classifications

To demonstrate cluster classifications we will be creating two classifications, Organization and Cluster. The organization will represent a company, and clusters will represent divisions within the company.

Adding a Cluster Classification

To add a cluster classification go to the Program Administration block and select Admin > Cluster classification. We will start with the organization classification. For this example the organization will have all of the users of the organization assigned to it. Then the users of the organization can be assigned to sub-clusters that will be linked to curricula, tracks, and classes.

Creating a cluster classification

Next we will create a regular cluster classification. The clusters in this classification will be sub-clusters of an organizational cluster. These clusters will be used to auto-enroll students so we need to set the appropriate settings for auto-enrollments.

Create cluster classification

1. Auto-enroll users in curricula - This should be checked if users from the cluster will be enrolling themselves in classes. Enrolling users in a curriculum gives them access to the courses of the curriculum, and the user could then enroll themselves in a class.

2. Auto-enroll users in tracks - This should be selected if users will be auto-enrolled in tracks/classes by an admin user. By assigning the cluster to a track, the users can be auto-enrolled in classes, if the classes are set to auto-enroll for the track.

3. Auto-enroll users in groups - This should be selected if users should be auto-enrolled in groups.

4. Auto-enroll users in groupings - This should be selected if users should be auto-enrolled in groupings.

5. Automatically create an Alfresco shared organizational folder - This feature should only be enabled if the clusters being assigned the classification should have Alfresco share folders created.

6. Default classification for child clusters - Select the default classification that will be assigned to child clusters or sub-clusters.
