1B) Click the tab users to find the user and click Roles

2) Add the role(s) to the user and click Update

  • Learner: takes a course. (for each learner that is registered for a course, a 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 course content.
  • Mentor: a third party who can monitor the efforts and progress of the learners.
  • Reseller: can create access codes and manage the course catalogue.
  • Administrator: manages the learning environment. Responsible, among other things, for creating content libraries and managing users.
  • Tenant: has the tab 'Getting Started' from which licences can be purchased. (This check box is only visible if you have the role 'Tenant')

Read more details about this in: Roles and rights of users within the aNewSpring platform

Next tabs will appear where the permissions of the roles can be set.

3) Set up the permission per role

A) Enrol a learner to a course

Click + Subscription and choose one or more courses from the pop-up and click Update. 

Adding a learner to a group works the same as enrolling. The learner is then immediately enrolled in all courses that are united in that group.

Use the import function when you have a lot of learners/users to add into aNewSpring. Read more about: Importing users

B) Enrol the Instructor to an instructor group

An instructor must be enrolled in an instructor group before they can tutor learners. When you click + Group, a popup with all instructor groups will appear. Select one or more and click Update.
