Summary of access models

Access model = UNRESTRICTED

If you are running the UNRESTRICTED access model then, in QuercusPlus, you will see all course or module instances.

1Melanie Hope is NOT a tutor for the 1.ENG L1 module instance …

2But under the UNRESTRICTED access model Melanie sees the module included in the listing on the MODULES tab

Access model = INSTANCE_PERSON

If you are running the INSTANCE_PERSON access model then, in QuercusPlus, you will see only the course or module instances for which you are a tutor.

1Melanie Hope has been assigned as a tutor to the Early Farming module (highlighted in green)

2under the INSTANCE_PERSON access model the Early Farming module appears on Melanie Hope’s MODULES tab.

Access model = INSTANCE_ORGANISATION

If your organisation is running the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION access model then, in QuercusPlus, you will see only the course instances associated with the organisation.

1The GEO10.1 Geography course instance is associated with the National University of Ireland, Galway

2Melanie is employed by the National University of Ireland, Galway

3under the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION access model the GEO10.1 Geography course instance appears on Melanie Hope’s COURSES tab.

Note: The INSTANCE_ORGANISATION model only works for courses that have been associated with organisations using the Quercus Classic interface.

In this access model modules cannot be associated with an organisation. If you need to associate modules with an organisation and filter results on this basis you must use the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW content access model. The INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW allows you to associate both courses and modules with an organisation, and filter results accordingly.

The two models are alternatives and should not be used together. This is because if you associate a course with an organisation via the Quercus Classic Interface (see Access model = INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW, below) the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION model ‘sees’ the relationship but the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW model does not. Conversely, if you associate a course with an organisation through the QuercusPlus interface the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW model sees the relationship but the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION model does not.

Access model = INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW

If your organisation is running the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW access model then, in QuercusPlus, you will see only the course instances and modules associated with the organisation to which you belong.

In the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW model the link between organisations and courses and modules is made through the QuercusPlus Organisations screen.

1The Organisations screen allows you to associate courses and modules with an organisation using the Add options in the Tasks panel

2If you click the Add Course option or Add Module you can associate courses with the organisation …

3Once you’ve done this members of the organisation can see the courses

4and members of the organisation can see the modules

The INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW model works for courses and modules that have been associated with organisations using the QuercusPlus interface. It will not show courses that have been associated with an organisation using the Quercus Classic Interface (contrast with the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION model on here)

Note that the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW and the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION models are alternatives and should not be used together. This is because if you associate a course with an organisation via the Quercus Classic Interface (see Access model = INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW, above) the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION model ‘sees’ the relationship but the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW model does not. Conversely, if you associate a course with an organisation through the QuercusPlus interface the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION_NEW model sees the relationship but the INSTANCE_ORGANISATION model does not.

Access model = COURSE_PROGRAM_DETAIL

Note: the course program detail model is provided for back-compatibility with MyCampus 2.0. It is documented here for reference purposes, but should not be used in new implementations.

If your organisation is running the COURSE_PROGRAM_DETAIL access model then:

if you are assigned as a tutor to a module instance

and

if that module instance is associated with a course instance

you will see the course instances with which your module is associated listed on the QuercusPlus COURSES tab.

You will also see the module instance listed on the MODULES tab.

If you drill into the course detail on the COURSES tab, and click the Modules sub-tab, you will see the other modules belonging to that course instance (even if you are not a tutor for those modules). However these modules will not appear on the main MODULES tab unless you are a tutor for them.

1The Early Farming (FARM) module is associated with the Archaeology ARCH-01 course instance.

2Melanie Hope has been assigned as a tutor for the module (via the Tut button on the previous screen).

3The Archaeology ARCH-01 course instance shows up on Melanie’s COURSE tab because she is a tutor for a module on the course …

4… and the FARM module shows up on her MODULES tab because she is a tutor for the module AND the module is associated with a course instance.
