How to install OCA modules

Hi, I want to install some OCA modules as add ons and have a few questions. I tried the following:

1. Navigate to add ons folder (where all add ons are)

2. git clone https://github.com/OCA/carrier-delivery

This added the carrier-delivery folder to my addons folder, however it does not show up in my modules list after refreshing the list. What is travis CI? Do I need to do something special for those kinds of modules to work? Is there a step by step tutorial somewhere on how to install OCA modules with the travis CI structure?

And... should I be installing additional addons into another folder (not the Odoo/addons folder)? If so, how do I get Odoo to recognize this folder?

Thanks for your help!

Did you activate developer modus in help about odoo? That should make appear something like update module list in the left menu within settings. After that you should be able to search for your newly added local module.
