Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Course creator role.


Computer courses The purpose of this course is to give the students the opportunity to practice and enhance computer concepts and skills.

Creating a course

The "Add a new course" button can be found at the bottom of the page listing all courses.

When a course creator creates a course, they are automatically assigned the role of teacher (or whatever role is set in Administration > Users > Permissions > User policies) for the course. They may then assign additional teachers and/or assign other roles to selected users. They may also unassign themselves from the role of teacher, if preferred.

Note (1): If a user is assigned the role of course creator in the course category context, the "Add a new course" button only appears when the course category contains at least one course.

Note (2): Course creators are not automatically assigned the role of teacher in a course they have not created, even if it is in a category where they have Course Creator rights.

Role assignment

A user may be assigned the role of course creator as a system role (in Settings > Site administration > Users > Permissions > Assign system roles) or in the course category context.
