Guest Access

Allowing Guest Access in a course or organization site will allow un-enrolled users the ability to enter and read the information therein. Access is granted at the course/org level and at the menu item level.

How do I change the global access for guests or observers in my site?

If you want to allow/deny guest access to your course or organization, follow these instructions:

  1. Go under the Control Panel heading>Customization.
  2. Click the “Guest and Observer Access” button.
  3. Check the setting for “Guest Access” .  To allow guests to access the site be sure the setting is set to “Yes” for Allow Guests.
  4. Click submit to change the preference.

How do I change guest access for main menu items (buttons/links on the left)?

Once you’ve allowed guests access to your site, you can allow or deny guest access to specific menu items. To do so, follow these instructions:

  1. To change guest  access, go to the course or organization and click the double-down arrow to the right of the title of the menu item.
  2. From the menu that appears, you will see an option to Deny or Permit guests.  This is a toggle switch between the two options.
    • Click  “Permit Guests ” to allow guest access.
    • Click “Deny Guests” to restrict access to enrolled users in the site.
