Controlling Access to Content

Within a course there may be times where you wish to control which resources a student or groups of students may access.

This is achieved via Activity Completion and Restrict Access Conditions.

  • Examples of Controlling Access to Resources

    These are number of examples of how access to resources can be controlled.

    Pre-requisite Study

    This is probably the most common scenario in which there is content that the student must "complete" before they can move on to further content. 


Within Myplace there are a number of formal and informal roles that can be assigned. Myplace Roles are generally mapped to PEGASUS Responsibilities.

  • Add Formal Staff Roles to a Class

    This article refers to the adding of your own staff roles in the class catalogue within Pegasus

    Note: Role changes in the application Pegasus may take a while to be visible as changes within MyPlace due to the replication process between the two systems.

  • Add Informal Roles to a Class

    This support pages describes how to add roles to an enrolled person in order to give them access to, or additional capabilities on, your Myplace page.

  • Assigning Roles and Responsibilities

    This article refers to when you wish to make changes on behalf of other staff members to the Class Catalogue

  • Manual Student Enrolment on a Class

    In most cases student enrolments should not be manually managed. PEGASUS Class Codes or Programme Codes are preferred and will be kept in sync with the student's official curriculum.

    There are cases where it is necessary to manually enrol a student into a class:
