Anonymous Login Documentation

Anonymous Login allows your learners to access lessons or courses by following URLs with unique IDs appended to them.

Just grab a shared lesson or course link to get started; then, append ?ext_uid= to the end of the link. From there, add whatever alphanumeric ID you’d like after the equals sign.

Here’s an example where the unique ID is 000001:

https://university.lessonly.com/lesson/123456?ext_uid=000001

Note: If you are currently logged in (after previously following an Anonymous Login link for example) then ext_uid is ignored and you will access the course or lesson as the user that is already logged in.

For security purposes, you must also add a security hash to the link. This hash will be generated by you once you enable Anonymous Login in your account. Instructions for using the hash are available in your account via Company Settings.
