Guest access

Guest access is a way for faculty to give access (viewing only, no editing or uploading) to a visitor from outside of the Five Colleges who will not be regularly enrolled in the course site. Please check the Five College users instructions or the Registrar's procedures for auditors first to determine if they are more appropriate for your visitor.

  • Visitor Guest Access - for allowing visitors without a Five Colleges account to view your Moodle course site.  Visitors can only view the course site (no editing or submission privileges) and are not added to the roster.
  • Faculty-sponsored Guest Access - MHC Faculty who would like to add individual non-Five Colleges colleagues or collaborators to the roster for their Moodle course(s) can use this form to request a special, 1-semester MHC Moodle account be generated for their guest. Either the faculty member or the potential guest may submit the form which will initiate the process. In most cases, an account will be generated within 3 business days and the recipient notified via email. With the new account username, the faculty member can add their colleague to the roster for their Moodle course.
LITS strongly encourages faculty to set a password for guest access to their course sites to protect the copyright on materials in your site.
If you have any questions or trouble with these steps, please contact your LITS liaison .
