      Description

      Enrolment plugins PayPal and Self enrolment have settings "Enrolment period", "Start date" and "End date". There is no help for these settings and it is not clear what they actually mean and do.

      After a discussion in the HQ chat, I suggest to reword "Enrolment period" to "Enrolment duration" (which is used elsewhere already) and to add help strings for these settings.

        Helen, can you please look at the suggested changes in https://github.com/mudrd8mz/moodle/compare/MOODLE_20_STABLE...MDL-28325-enrol-help_20_STABLE and tell me what do you think of it? The wording was discussed with Sam Marshall.
