'''Teacher''' is one of the core user [[Assign roles|roles]] in Moodle. The others include [[Administrator]], [[Student]] and [[Guest access|Guest]]. These roles have privileges and control what you can and can't do within particular areas of a Moodle.  In short, an ''Administrator'' can do almost anything and go anywhere, a ''Teacher'' has control over a specific course within a Moodle and the experience of their learners, and a ''Student'' participates in a course.
 
  
The term 'Teacher' can be changed to something else in the course settings or in the site settings.  For example 'Tutor', 'Facilitator', 'Professor' or 'Instructor' might be more appropriate.  The default term is Teacher and is generally used throughout Moodle documentation.
