The University of the West Indies Open Campus is newest campus of University of the West Indies (UWI) was formally launched in June 2008. It offers multi-mode teaching and learning services through physical sites as well as through its Moodle based online delivery system called The Learning Exchange. The Learning Exchange is currently an instance of Moodle 1.8 which is customize for the Open Campus Environment. We are currently in the process of and upgrade to Moodle 2.0 so a number of these new enhancements to our Moodle instance have to be done. This presentation will show how we created a custom enrollment plug-in for Moodle 2.0 which allows students to be automatically grouped when they are enrolled into a course. This takes the form of a custom library which can be added to an existing enrollment plug-in to give it the ability to do auto grouping.
