Configuring Open Access

Open Access is best suited when you want to seamlessly grant access through links.

With Open Access, you can share links in two different ways:

  • Pre-populating learner details in the link you provide to the learner

  • Gather information from the learner when they arrive at your school prior to them accesses content. Note: this option offers no security, as anyone with this link will have access.
