Roles in Moodle Admin.

Roles in Moodle Admin.

Moodle comes with a number of predefined roles. These standard roles are suitable for some educational setups, but most institutions require modifications to the roles' system in order to tailor Moodle to their specific needs.
Each role has permissions for a number of actions that can be carried out in Moodle. For example, an administrator and a course creator are able to create new courses, whereas all other roles are denied this right. Likewise, a teacher is allowed to moderate forums, whereas students are only allowed to contribute to them.
The description of each standard role and the short names (that are used internally and in operations such as user batch upload) given by Moodle are listed in the table that follows:

Short Name
Administrators have full access to the entire site and to all courses.
Site administrator - can "do everything" on the site
Manager - a lesser administrator role
Course Creator
Course creators can create new courses and also teach in them.
Teachers can do anything within a course, including changing activities and grading students - can manage and add content to courses.
Non-editing Teacher
Non-editing teachers can teach in courses and grade students, but not alter any activities.
Students are able to perform allocated tasks which include resources and activities, among others - can access and participate in courses.
Guests have minimal privileges and usually cannot enter text anywhere - can view courses but not participate.
Authenticated User
Additional role given once logged in. It is an exception role and is mostly used by Moodle internally.
Authenticated user on the front page role - a logged in user role for the front page only.
