Enrolling Non-Carleton Accounts in your Course

The instructor for the course must enroll your account manually to their course page AFTER you have logged into our server and created your Carleton Moodle account. Instructors can use the standard manual enrollment instructions to search for and enroll your Carleton Moodle account in their course site.
