Making the most of the dynamicLMS.
In the latest of our recurring articles exploring some of the features of the dynamicLMS. and how you can make the most of it, LMS Service Delivery Manager, Lisa Welch, takes a look at guest access courses.
If you’ve ever wanted to create a course that is accessible to all users within the LMS without them having to be specifically enrolled, you can use the guest enrolment method to allow this.
Guest access courses
This functionality is best used for a collection of resources that you want to make widely available to your users but is not a course that you need to track user completion.
For example, you may want to use this for content that is for reference only, such as a course area that holds your company policy documents. You can couple these courses with our resources block in the user dashboard so that users can easily access the content.
To make a course a guest access course, go to the Course actions menu. Select More > Users (tab) > Enrolment methods.
From here, disable any current enrolment methods and add Guest access as the only enrolment method.
With the powerful reporting tools in the dynamicLMS. you can see how popular each activity in a guest access course really is, without cluttering up a user’s training record for every resource or policy they view. Go to the Course actions menu and select More > Reports (tab) > Activity report to access the powerful reporting tools.
