Chapter 6. Roles and Permissions

In the last chapter, we dealt with the management of users. Now we will introduce roles, a complex but powerful subject. Roles define what users can or cannot see and perform in your Moodle system.

In this chapter you will:

  • Understand how roles work, and how they fit into different contexts.

  • Assign roles to different users in different contexts.

  • Modify roles and create new ones, including a role for parents or mentors.

  • Manage a range of administrative role-related settings.
