[ay15-16] Moodle - Using Guest Access

This article is about the option to make your course public to everyone, or to make someone a guest using manual enrollment.

Making the Course Public

To allow guest access, be sure that Guest Access is in the course's Enrollment Methods.

In the "Settings" block select Users and then select Enrollment Methods.

If "Guest Access" does not appear under the Enrollment Methods, select Guest Access from the "Add Method" drop-down.

Adding Guest Access

Click on the Edit Settings option in the "Administration" block on the left side of the page.

Under Edit Settings, scroll down to the "Guest Access" section and change the "Allow Guest Access" box to Yes

Allowing Guest Access
