The Process

The illustration below gives you an overview of the Online Enrolment Process from the time you publish your scope to receiving an application and processing to accept or reject.


Set Up Online Enrolment

Setting up Online Enrolment must be done by the Portal Administrator.

  1. Purchase an Online Enrolment license by contacting our Sales Team on 1300 365 384 (AUS) or 0800 543 070 (NZ) to arrange that for you.
  2. Once you have your Online Enrolment license, follow the steps below on how to Set Up and Configure Online Enrolment.
The Application

Important Note!

Some of the steps to follow, to allow prospective Learners to apply into a Course Offer online, will vary by country and some of these steps can be turned on and off in your Wisenet Portal Online Enrolment Settings. They can only apply if:

  • Accept Enrolments is TRUE in your Course Offer > Online Enrolment settings
  • Today’s date is within the Course Offer > Enrolment Period (equal to or after the start date AND equal to or before the end date)
  • There are Vacancies in the Course Offer (number of current enrolments is less than maximum enrolments)

  1. Set Up Email Templates

There are two Email Templates that need to be set up.

  1. Automatically send to Learner to notify Application Received and being processed
  2. Automatically send to Admin to notify New Application Submitted.

The process to Set Up an Email Template is the same for both.

  2. Payments (Optional)

  • Decide whether to accept online payments and if:
  • Complete all the Paypal Paypal Verisign settings if you have purchased a PayPal account

There are specific processes to follow when publishing your Courses. Once you have published an Online Enrolment Offer, you can:

  • Unpublish it
  • Keep it published, but no longer accept enrolments
  • Change the description
  • Extend or shorten the date range it is available online

Now that you you have your courses published and know how to receive applications the last step is making it easy for applicants to find their desired Courses.

Linking your Courses to you public website will help you make it easy for applicants to find their desired Courses, after you have published your Courses and have received applications. Once you have located the Online Enrolment URL, you have three options to choose from depending on how you want to use the URL on your public website.

  1. Locate the Online Enrolment URL – This will only be available if your Training Organisation has purchased our Online Enrolment module and only your Portal Administrator can view the URLs in the Portal.
    • Navigate to your Wisenet Portal
    • In the Portal Profile Page, Click on the relevant icon
    • The URL will appear in a popup (e.g. as shown in the illustration for Learner App)
    • Highlight the link with your mouse
    • Right click the link and select Copy link
    • You can then paste this link into an email or document and forward to the relevant staff (your IT Team or Web Developer)
  2. Choose from these three options:
Option 1: Single URL to Online Enrolment

This is the simplest option as it allows a single link on your website.

  • Get the Online Enrolment URL as per Step 1 above
  • Add this URL into an appropriate place on your website
    • This will allow potential Learners to click through to the Online Enrolment application
    • The Learner will then search, find and apply for their desired Course

Option 2: Unique URL for each published course

Every Published Course has a unique URL for Online Enrolment for the potential Learner to:

  1. View the Published Course
  2. Apply for the published course

These URLs can be:

  • Emailed to specific groups of Learners
  • Manually used in webpages to have “Apply Now” buttons for specific Course content in public website

Option 3: Deep link Published Course information into public site

Dynamically show published Course information from Wisenet in specific web pages on your public website

  • E.g. Have a First Aid course web page and at the bottom show a control that has all published Course from Wisenet
  1. Navigate to LRM > Sales > Online Enrolment
  2. Select to View Published Offers by clicking on Published Offers – Here you will see the list of courses you are offering in Online Enrolment
  3. At the end of the course name you will see 3 icons. Click the middle icon. This will open a pop-up window that shows two hyperlinks
    • The first will take you to the course description within Online Enrolment
    • The second will take you to the first step of the enrolment wizard
  4. Copy the desired link and put it in your website

To ensure that your prospective students don’t see other published courses, please switch on the Private Course Mode setting in your portal settings. This will hide all Course Search functionality so that all published courses are private. Access to courses will be available only via direct links.
