Each role in Moodle is intended for a specific context:
 
*[[Student role]] - works best in the course context, problematic and sometimes buggy if used in course category or system; doesn't work at all in user context
 
*[[Teacher role]] - works best in the course or category contexts; doesn't work at all in user context
 
*[[Authenticated user role]] - works in the system context only; no manual role assignment
 
*[[Administrator role]] - intended ''only for the system context''
 
 
 
:''Tip'': To avoid unexpected results, assign the role of admin as a system role only.
