How do I assign a role?

A course participant has a role of Teacher, TA, Grader or Student.
These are Enrollable roles.
To enrol a user to your course:

  • Click on Enrolled users under item Users in the Administration block.
  • Click on button Enrol users at top left
  • In the popup:
    • Select a role from menu Assign roles
    • Enter first or last name, email or ID in the search field and click on Search**
    • Click on button Enrol alongside the user you wish to enrol
    • Click on button Finish enrolling users
  • Wait a moment for the page to update itself.

Other users can have a role of Coordinator, Colleague, Secretary or Visitor..
A user with any of these roles is not considered a course participant.
To assign one of these roles, click on Other users under item Users in the Administration block.

The roles of Teacher, TA, Grader, Student, Coordinator, Colleague, Secretary and Visitor are Primary Roles.
A user can have one and only one Primary role.

A user with a Primary role can have one or more Additional roles.
Additional roles include Editor, X-ray eyes, Restricted and Very restricted .
To assign an Additional role click on alongside the user and select the role.

**Search for users by Hebrew or English, whole or prefix, first or last name, or by whole first name followed by whole or prefix last name (or vice versa), or by whole or prefix email, or by 8- or 9-digit ID (i.e. with leading zeroes).
If user is not a registered Teacher or Student, and has never used Moodle, search by full email or 8- or 9-digit ID.
