Guest Access allows users to access a course where they are not enrolled. They can access the course via a direct link or the Manual Search for Moodle Courses from the Home Page.

Guests can access:

  • pages
  • books
  • files
  • videos
  • labels

Guests cannot access:

  • quizzes
  • assignments
  • databases
  • feedback
  • anything grade-able

Scroll to the top of your course page.

From the Secondary navigation, click the Participants item.

Use the drop-down at the top to select Enrolment Methods.

If Guest access is already listed under Enrollment methods, skip to Step #8.

If Guest access enrollment method is NOT listed, use the Add method drop-down and select Guest access.

Ensure that Allow guest access is set to Yes.

OPTIONAL: Enter a Password to restrict access to your course. If you do not set a password, anyone can access your course.

Click the Add method button.

Ensure that Guest access has the eye icon open.

Share the bypass Login page and the link to your course with your guest. Instruct them to use the Access as a guest button to log in.
