Template:Moodle 1.7

Roles and capabilities in Moodle 1.7 onwards provides great flexibility in managing how users interact. Prior to Moodle 1.7, there were only six roles possible: guest, student, non-editing teacher, editing teacher, course creator, and administrator. Whilst these roles may still be used, it's now possible to create additional roles, and to change what a given role can do in a particular activity.


An identifier of the user's status in some context, for example Teacher, Student and Forum moderator
A description of a particular Moodle feature, for example moodle/blog:create
A setting for a capability
A "space" in Moodle, such as courses, activity modules or blocks
