Assigning Roles

» Download Tutorial (PDF)

The Enrolled Users option allows you to enroll users in your course and provide them with a specific role. Teachers can assign the roles of Teacher, Non-editing teacher, and Student.

Note: In order for students to be listed in a Moodle course, they need to activate their Moodle accounts first. To do so, they should go to eCampus. Under My Favorite Services there is a Moodle tab for students to access Moodle. In order to log into Moodle students will use their universal username and password. If students have followed these steps accurately they will appear in the Participants list.

Teacher Non-editing teacher Student
Teachers can do anything within a course, including changing the activities and grading students. This role is similar to that of Teaching Assistant. A nonediting teacher can enter grades for the students, but he/she cannot edit the contents of the course. Students have access to the course information provided by the instructor and are able to post responses in the forums, contribute to wikis, etc.
