At times you may want to allow student or instructor based access to individuals who do not have UH usernames. To do so:
1. Log into Laulima (https://laulima.hawaii.edu), select a course, then click on the Site Info link in the Course Menu
2. Using the Menu bar select the link for "Add Participants"
3. IN the text block for "Guest(s) Email Address" type in the VALID email address of the participant, then click "Continue"
*NOTE: If you are trying to add an e-mail address such as firstname.lastname@example.org, it will not go through. The .hawaii.edu at the end of the e-mail causes a problem in the system. If the person you are trying to add does not have a UH username, they will need to use another e-mail other than one that has the .hawaii.edu at the end of it.
4. Select the type of user access you want this participant to have in the course (in this case I only want them to have normal student access), then click "Continue"
5. Laulima provides a warning that in order for this new participant to access the course it must be Published (by default all new courses are NOT published or viewable to participants, please view the tutorial on Publishing Your Course), click "Continue" again
6. To finalize the process, click "Finish" (newly added Guests will be sent an email to their email address with password and log in information)
