How do I allow a "guest" into my course?

Because of WebCT's "global database" format, a designer cannot "create" a student or guest account but a designer can "import" one that exists in the global database already.

Though this is a limitation of the global database, it is also the reason why users only need one username and one password to get into all of their courses.

If you know that a person is already in the database, you can simply import their WebCT ID

faculty WebCT ID's are based on this standard format.. First initial + last name + D, with no spaces.
student WebCT ID can be found by searching here... <https://grim.westga.edu/pls/UWGP_DAD/webct_email>

If the person you wish to allow guest access who is NOT in the global database, you'll need to e-mail distance@westga.edu with the request. Please provide course number and name, section, the guest's name, username desired and password desired...
