Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Assign roles.

I am going through the category of pages needing updating and I see this one , which is very much 1.9-based and am wondering how it fits into the new layout of roles/where it links and if it is important to update this page or to redirect to somewhere else or blend it into other roles pages -anybody have any thoughts?--Mary Cooch 18:54, 10 January 2012 (WST)

Hi Mary, I've just checked and found that the Assign roles page is linked to from the 'Assign system roles' page in Moodle, also all locally assigned roles pages, for both activities and blocks (not that you can do anything there!) so I think it would be good to update the page and describe these things. Assigning users a role in a course links to Manual enrolment so no need to cover that. Thanks! :-) Assign roles could then be included in the TOC. --Helen Foster 22:33, 10 January 2012 (WST)

Hi. I am using:

Moodle 2.2.3+ (Build: 20120525)

My page looks nothing like this.

I have a block named "settings" within which I have a selection named "Site administration". Selecting "Courses" show nothing wrt context per this documentation.

Perhaps 2.2.3+ does not include this feature?

Pat - not sure which page you are not seeing but perhaps you need to look inside a course rather than from the site administration? --Mary Cooch 22:37, 8 June 2012 (WST)

Hi Mary, I just do not seem to be able to find the context selection pages mentioned in this document. I am unable to add course instructors/teachers using the site admin -> courses -> Upload Courses tool. We have too many courses to manually have to add each instructor manually.

Unless I can figure this out we are abandoning our upgrade effort and will stick with ver 1.9.x until the lights are turned off.

Hi Pat, perhaps you're thinking of Upload users via Settings > Site administration > Users > Accounts > Upload users which is pretty much the same in 2.2 as it was in 1.9. --Helen Foster 23:58, 8 June 2012 (WST)
