The Guest access plugin allows users with the Guest role to view the contents of a course. This might be used, for example, if a Moodle site serves as a website where certain courses contain publicly available information, or else with a commercial Moodle site where courses with guest access can offers a "taster" of the kind of courses which may be purchased.
|Note: Guests cannot view or participate in any activities; they can only view content. Therefore, it is not a good role for collaborators or visiting lecturers in a course.|
