Necessary roles to perform this tutorial

This must be unique and will not be visible to the learners.

You can choose from 7 different template types and it differs per type which Template functionalities you can use.
In a template of the type E-learning, you do not have the possibility to activate the discussion function.

By default, a new content library is created, but you can also select existing libraries.
