For courses that have a long waitlist, instructors can enable guest access to allow all GauchoSpace users to view the course materials. We recommend that you turn off guest access a few days after add codes have been distributed.
Granting guest access will allow your site to be visible to waitlisted students. Alternatively, you can allow course crashers to enroll in the course site if you would like them to participate in discussion forums and upload assignments. To allow course crashers to enroll, follow these instructions here: How do I allow all GauchoSpace users to view my course site and provide an option for course crashers to become a participant in my course?
- Go to the Administration block and click Users. Then, click Enrollment methods
- Click on the eye next to Guest access to grant guess access.
- Click on the gear icon to edit the settings for your Guest Access. Here, you can set a password for access.
- Now, there is an option to click Users > Guest access from the Administration block. Here, you can update the settings or disable Guest Access.
