ELIS 1.9 Manual

Step by Step Example Program Setup

Using a cluster with a curriculum

Now we will create a cluster to add to the curriculum. We can access the cluster creation page in two ways:
  1. Go to the Curriculum/Program Administration block > Users > Manage Clusters, then select the Add Cluster button.
  2. Select the Cluster tab of the curriculum, then select the Add Cluster button.
This cluster will be a sub-cluster of the PM-Level 1 cluster. The reason I create a sub-cluster here is because the PM-Level 1 cluster will be associated with a track for auto-enrollment. This way I can associate users of the sub-cluster with the curriculum, and users of the main cluster will be associated with the track.

I won't auto-associate this cluster with any profile fields, users will be manually added to the cluster.

Creating a cluster page

The following image shows the new cluster on the Sub-clusters tab of the PM-Level 1 cluster. Select the sub-cluster name from the list to link to the sub-cluster.

Sub-cluster tab

Now we can add the sub-cluster to a curriculum, select the Curricula tab to auto-associate this sub-cluster to a curriculum.

The curricula tab of a cluster

As the curriculum is selected in the previous image the following screen appears with auto-enroll settings. Select the Save changes button and the cluster is auto-associated to the curriculum. Users will be auto-enrolled in the curriculum when they are assigned to this cluster.

Auto-enroll setting for cluster-curriculum association

Now users in the cluster will be able to self-enroll in courses of the curriculum.
