This guide details how people who are not members of the University, but require access to Moodle, can be issued with a visitor IT account linked to a University ID number. A visitor IT account may be issued for unpaid external staff, non-credit-bearing students, and where courses in Moodle are aimed at people external to Warwick.
It is important that this process is only used where the person is not already recorded in student records (SITS) or the HR system.
For visiting academics, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Contact your departmental administrator or departmental contact for academic technologies to ask if they have the facility to create these accounts via access to the University membership or card management systems.
If they are not able to create these accounts, please follow the additional steps:
2. Use the 'Request an IT account for a visitor' form via the online help desk.
3. Fill in the online form. Under 'For what purpose is an ITS account required?' please write 'Access to Moodle'. In any communication with the IT Help Desk it is always worth reiterating that these accounts are being requested in order to allow access to Moodle.
4. Download the Excel spreadsheet.
5. Complete the spreadsheet: Please note the spreadsheet is a macro-enabled Excel workbook. When completing it, open it in Excel and allow the macros (select "Enable content"). Please fill in at least the following required fields: Forename, Surname, External Email address, Date of Birth, Start Date and End Date. If you wish to request visitor access for more than one person, you may add all people into one spreadsheet.
6. Save the file to your PC once complete.
7. Attach the file to the filled-in online form.
8. Submit the online form with the spreadsheet attached.
9. A University ID number with the associated visitor account will be created on the University membership system for each individual you have made a request for. You will be notified when this has taken place.
10. Activate the account(s) via https://warwick.ac.uk/register using the University ID number and date of birth. Accounts will be available for use and will appear automatically in Moodle within 24 hours.
Information on how to login to Moodle can be found in this guide.
Visitor account holders are eligible for a University card that can be collected from University House (staff), or Senate House (students).
