Note: See Add new users to learn how to create accounts on your site.

  • Administrators on a Moodle site can see and do everything. Choose your admins wisely!
  • All new users who log into Moodle have a role “authenticated user”. They must be added to courses as students or teachers. They don't have the role sitewide. Make sure you understand the idea of 'context' in roles
  • Moodle has a number of standard roles such as Teacher and Student.
  • Permissions are a collection of capabilities (things a role is allowed to do) You can change, give or remove capabilities for roles to adapt them to your needs.
