Authenticated user role
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Authenticated user role.
The default role for all logged-in users in Moodle 1.8 onwards is Authenticated user (as set in Administration > Users > Permissions > User policies). In older Moodle versions the default role for all logged-in users was Guest.
The role of Authenticated user does not conflict with other roles a user may have, it just ensures that a user has capabilities that are not assignable at the course level, such as being able to post blog entries and manage own calendar etc.
