Enable courses without password
Closed, ResolvedPublic


There should be an option to create courses without password. In my opinion, if the password can be public on the course page, then why have it at all?

It just adds extra burden to the organizers of many courses / events / edit-a-thons.

I agree - currently the *requirement* to have the password raises the threshold of joining the course (one more piece of information needs to be copy-pasted or remembered). It should be optional.

I would like to remind this task - from September, we are going to start a lot of courses and people are very confused by required password. There is a possibility to delete a password, but the password is still required and people have to confirm empty box what isn´t logical.

Ah, I hadn't considered the case of using the 'Join' button in 'Available Actions' when I worked on the passcode issue. I just filed a ticket for it:

In the meantime, if you use a link with ?enroll at the end, then the join button that appears at the top will work without asking for a passcode.
