Add roles

Users can have different roles within the platform. Read below the summarised descriptions of the roles.

  • Learner: takes a course. For each learner that is registered for a course, the paid license is listed.
  • Instructor: tutors an active course.
  • Author: can place educational materials such as questions and content in the system.
  • Designer: can create templates out of existing questions and content parts.
  • Mentor: a third party who can monitor the efforts and progress of the learners.
  • Administrator: manages the learning environment. Responsible, among other things, for creating content libraries and managing users.
  • Reseller: can create access codes and manages the catalogue.
  • Tenant: has the tab 'tenant tab' () from which, for example, licences can be purchased. (This tab is only visible if you have the role 'Tenant')

Click on Roles behind the user where you want to change the roles. Tick the checkboxes for roles you want to give this user and click Update to save changes. Next tabs will appear where the privileges of the roles can be set.

Tabs per role

Tab: Learner
You can enrol learners for a course by clicking on +Course. When the pop-up appears you can select several courses and click on Update. You can also give access to groups, if these are already made. To do this click on +Group. Adding a learner to a group is done the same as enrolling a learner. The learner will then automatically be subscribed to the courses that are linked to the group. Here you can also extend the courses for the learners, please read more about this here.

Tab: Instructor
An instructor has to be enrolled in an instructor group before he can tutor learners. If you click on +Group, a pop-up will appear with all existing instructor groups. Select one or more instructor groups and click on Update. Read more about linking instructors to a course in "Course settings - Tab: Instructors.
