Manage Guest Access

Introduction

Faculty can enable Guest Access to allow people not enrolled in their course to access their Moodle site.

  • By default, courses are built with guest access turned off.
  • If you set guest access to Yes you can then attach a password. Only guests with the password will be allowed access.
  • Note that guests will have access to resources, but not to activities, E-Reserves or Video Reserves.
