If you need access to a GauchoSpace course site but you are not officially enrolled in the course via GOLD, you can ask the course Instructor to add you to the course site as a Course Crasher. The Course Crasher role allows students who are not enrolled through GOLD to access a course site, view materials, and participate in assignments and forums.
Instructors control the addition of students as Course Crashers into their course site. Therefore, you must contact the course Instructor for information on how to enter their site as a Course Crasher. Depending on the Instructor's preference, Course Crashers may be manually enrolled by the Instructor or may enroll themselves with or without an enrollment key.
Note: Only UCSB students can be assigned the Course Crasher role. If you would like access to a course site but are not a registered student, then you can ask the course Instructor to add you to the course as a non-UCSB student.
