ASSIGN PEOPLE TO ROLES

EasyCampus is a role-based system, meaning that what people see is related to what role they have in your campus. For example, one user might be a teacher who is able to edit a course and another member may be a student who cannot do so. A user who self-registers in your campus has no role unless they enroll in a course (and become a student) or you assign it to them.


Before You Begin


  • Determine the name of the person to whom you want to assign a role.
  • Identify the role you want to assign (Student, Teacher, Campus Admin, Express Admin). If you are assigning a student or teacher role, identify the name of the course to which you will assign the member.

Begin


To assign an Admin role:

  • Locate the Site Administration menu on the left side of your landing page. Click Users and then click Permissions. In the list of options that unfolds, click Assign System Roles. The middle portion of the screen will change and you will be able to see all the available roles.

  • Click either of the Admin Roles. The screen will change to let you select users for the role.

Tip: Your choice depends on how much power you want to give the member: the Campus Admin role has considerable power and should only be given to trusted individuals.

  • In the box on the right, click the name of the user to whom you want to assign the role.
  • Click the Add button. The next time the user logs in, they will have the new privileges.

To assign a Teacher or Student role:

  • Make sure you’re on the campus landing page. Click the name of the course to which you want to assign a teacher or enroll a student.
  • Find the Administration Block in the course.
Administration Block

Generally, the Administration Block appears in the left-column or can be found by clicking Administer My Course in a facilitated template. If you cannot find this block, you can temporarily add it to any page by selecting it from the Add Block dropdown. Make sure you’re in Editing mode to see this dropdown.

  • Click the Assign Roles option in the Administration Block. The screen will change to let you change and you will be able to see all the available roles.
  • Click either Teacher or Student. The screen will change to let you select users for the role.

NOTE: This is one method of enrolling a person into a course.

  • In the box on the right, click the name of the user to whom you want to assign the role.
  • Click the Add button. The next time the user logs in, they will have the new privileges.
