Organization-wide roles

There are two types of organization-wide roles:

  • Standard: This is the most common role and gives users access to the syllabi, lesson plans and assignments for courses they can access. This user will not be able to view courses they are not added to, access admin features, etc.

  • Admin: This role is able to access all courses, regardless of whether they've been added to the course. They can also create new courses, update global course policies, invite users and more.
