Controlling access to your course or project site from Worksite Setup

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

Using Worksite Setup, you can control access to your course or project site:

  1. From the menubar in My Workspace, click Worksite Setup, and then check the box next to the site that you wish to revise.

    Note: Although you can check multiple boxes, you can only edit information about one site at a time.

  2. Click Edit, and then Manage Access.

  3. Under "Site Status", choose whether or not to publish your site (i.e., make it available to site participants).

  4. Under "Global Access", choose whether to keep your site private or have it display in the directory and allow sharing of files you select.

  5. You can make your site broadly accessible by checking Can be joined by anyone with authorization to login, and selecting a role for people who join your site. For more information about roles, see Participant roles.

  6. Click Update.
