Course metalinking allows a course (metacourse) to bring in enrolments from other courses(i.e) it makes it possible for all users enrolled in one course to be automatically enrolled in one or more other courses (metacourse).
Please Note: The Course meta link plugin needs to be enabled both on the site level by the site administrator and needs to be the enrolment method used within the child courses for the enrolments to be inherited into.
