Many instructors wish to share content and activities from their class sites with colleagues. To do so, instructors often add those external users to active courses in the Teacher role, providing those individuals with too much access to data about enrolled Students and their course-related work and learning behaviors.

If you need to enroll visitors in your PeopleSoft class site, you can add them in the Observer role. This role limits the enrolled user to viewing published content, activities, and interactions (if any) in the class Discussions forum.

PeopleSoft-related course instructors (and some Category Support administrators) have the necessary permissions to manually enroll users in their PeopleSoft course sites. Be sure to check with your unit/college contact for any additional requirements before adding an Observer role to any PeopleSoft course sites.
