Overview

'Guest' access to course sites' information within Learn.UQ is managed at three levels:

  1. System-levelmanaged by central Information Technology Services (ITS).
  2. Site-level: managed by UQ instructors or support staff at the individual site level (the site level 'guest' access has been turned on by 'default').
  3. Content areas-level: managed by UQ instructors or support staff at the course content area level (the content areas-level 'guest' access has been turned on by 'default' during the site creation process for the content areas listed below).  

The following content areas can be viewed (by default):

  •     Announcements
  •     Electronic Course Profile (ECP)
  •     Learning Resources
  •     Library links (set by the Library to be only viewable by enrolled UQ students)

All UQ staff and students (those with UQ logins) can view the above mentioned course materials in Learn.UQ. This however does not apply to the general public.

Permission to change the default settings must be sought from the Associate Dean academic.
