If you want to allow guest users to view your courses and campus content, you can achieve this by permitting the guest role, or non-logged in users, to view courses. While guests can view courses, they are not able to take quizzes, participate in forums or other activities. This provides a method for potential students or colleagues to preview your campus.

Before You Begin

  • Log in to your campus using your admin credentials.
  • Decide whether you whether guests will need a key to see the courses or can enter freely.


  • On the landing page of your campus, click the change settings link next to the name of the course you want to change.
Change Settings

Note: If you do not see this link, you may have changed the default layout. You can access the Settings page by clicking the Settings link in the Administration block of the course itself. If you can’t find this block, you can add it temporarily to any course page by selecting it from the Add Block dropdown.

  • Scroll down towards the bottom of this page to the Availability box. Find the option called Guest Access and take a look at the available options in the dropdown. You can set up an enrollment key for the course (both guests and students will need this key to enroll) or you can let guests in without a key. Click the option that matches your needs.
Availability section
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and then click Save Changes.

You can test this change by logging out of your campus and then checking you can go into the course without logging back in.

  • Repeat these steps for each course that you want to allow guests to view.
