How do I obtain the activation code for a specific course?

Some courses require an activation code in order to join. This means the course is private.

If there's a specific course you want to join, you can ask a course admin or facilitator if they are willing to give you the activation code. To do this:

 

Step 1

Go to the landing page of the course you wish to join

  

Step 2

Scroll to the "Who is supporting you" section at the bottom. The people listed here are the admins and facilitators that run this course. Click on one of them to be redirected to their OpenLearning profile

 

Step 3

On their profile click the "send a message" button

 

Step 4

Send them a politely worded message asking for the activation code.

  

REMEMBER: Even if you ask nicely, they are allowed to turn down your request. If this is the case, please be courteous and respect their decision.

  • Hi! I´ve tried to enter the "Essential Writing and Grammar" of Jason Sommerville. Therefore i need the activation code, but there is no "send me a message" button in Sommerviles profile. Did i miss something? KR Susanne

    • Susanne Posch Thank you for the link! This user has messaging turned off. Their course is also not active anymore. I have taken it offline to avoid any confusion in the future.

    • Muhozi isaac can you copy the link to the warehouse course you are looking to enroll?

      there are 2 options, you can contact the course staff to request the activation code, or the course itself is invite only.

    • Muhozi isaac hi there, the course admins have disabled the option to contact them as the course is now full based on the course title. You can reach out to the Institution directly by visiting their website at http://www.psp.edu.my
