Overview

There are several roles/permissions available within Curatr.

These roles relate to:

  1. The overall organisation
  2. Specific courses
  3. Specific groups

 

The overall organisation

These roles can be accessed at Org level.

An Organisation Admin inherits all rights (and therefore should be granted with care!).

An ‘Organisation Tutor’ can view progress and moderate every course in an Organisation, but cannot edit or manage course content.

A 'User Manager' can Create, Edit and Delete Users

A 'Course Creator' can Create Courses

A 'Group Creator' can Create, Edit and Delete Courses

A 'Badge Manager' can Create, Edit and Delete Badges

A 'Tag Manager' can can Create, Edit and Delete Tags

A 'Resource Admin' can Create, Edit and Delete Resources

Specific courses

These roles can be accessed at Course level.

A 'Course Admin' will not be able to administrate courses for which they are not listed as a ‘Course Admin’.

A ‘Course Tutor’ can view progress and moderate contributions for a given course, but cannot edit or manage course content.

N.B Course Tutor's comments in a course are highlighted to distinguish them from other learners comments.

 

Specific groups

These roles can be accessed with each Group.

A ‘Group Admin’ can administrate a given group of users across courses (enrolling them to courses en masse for example).

A ‘Group Tutor’ can view progress and moderate contributions for a given group across courses.

Advanced Permissions

 

Each individual user permission can also be modified with a set of Advanced User Permissions that will add some additional privileges. More details on how to amend roles on an individual basis can be found in the other articles within this section.

 

Note, these settings won’t affect Org Admins; they have rights to do all this by default.

 

The most common use of these additional settings is to grant Course Administrators  the ‘Course Creator’ permission. This will allow that user to create new Courses and then to administrate them (as well as to administrate courses they have been given permission for). Otherwise Org Admins will need to create all new courses.

Without devolving Theme or Badge editing rights, only Org Admins will be able to Create/Edit/Delete these elements. The same can be said for Tag and Group creation. Whilst you may wish to devolve these rights, best practice use of these elements will mean a level of centralised control.
