Many courses are available for 'guest' access - as a guest you can look at the course content but may not take part in any activities.
  Students must make sure that they enrol on a course rather than access it as a guest, otherwise they will miss out on discussion forums and will not be able to participate in any assessments or submit assignments.  We recommend Guest access be turned off, once student have selected their Modules.

It is possible to provide 'guest access' to a Moodle course - guests don't need UCL accounts in order to access a course. This will give them read-only access to documents, links, videos etc, but they will not be able to participate in activities such as forums or assessments. , quizzes, assessments, nor view videos in Lecturecast or MediaCentral which need a username.  See guest access, above.

If the user needs to participate in activities such as forums or assessments then ask your Departmental Administrator or Computer Rep  to register them as an official Visitor. This will provide them with a UCL user ID username and password, plus a UCL email address.  They will need to login to UCL moodle and accept our T&C's.  Once they have done thisOnce they been issued a UCL username, they will appear in the list of potential users, and can be manually enroled into any role by a Tutor or Course Administrator.  For external examiners requiring access to student submissions, we recommend enrolling them as a Non-editing tutor.
