Course Roles

Course roles control access to the content and tools within a course. Each user is assigned a role for each course in which they participate. For example, a user with a role of teaching assistant in one course can have a role of student in another course.

The course role is set when a user is enrolled. It can also be edited after enrollment from the Control Panel.

Course roles include:

Note:  Administrators may edit the names, capabilities, and privileges associated with existing course roles, as well as create new course roles. Therefore, some of the information listed here may not accurately reflect your available course roles.

To learn about enrolling users or changing course roles, such as promoting a student to teaching assistant, see Enrolling and Managing Users.
