Summary of iLearn roles

Summary of iLearn roles

There are different roles that can be assigned in iLearn. These roles exist in one of three defined contexts: unit, category, and system. This information sheet is designed to inform iLearn users of the varying grade and type of functionality each role possesses.

Within a unit context, roles are defined by the level of control each role has to create/modify content, and participate in an iLearn unit.

Convenors can:
