I gave someone guest access in Compass 2g, but they are unable to see any content when they view the course.
Guest access is not currently enabled for Compass 2g. If an instructor needs to add a guest, auditor, observer, or anyone else who is "looking" at class materials, they should be given student access. The other roles will not allow content viewing.
If an individual needs an account created, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Accounts for people not affiliated with the University can be created using the instructions at Illinois Compass 2g, Temporary guest accounts for Illinois Compass using Active Directory
