Moodle Roles

The University of Glasgow’s Moodle provides all the core Moodle roles and a number of custom ones. Roles offer a fixed list of capabilities for users in parts of Moodle (e.g. students in courses). There have been minor changes made in some of the core roles only to support local functionality and to address some security issues.

The core role ‘Teacher’ has been renamed ‘Staff’ but is otherwise the same.

The core role descriptions can be found at:

The non-core roles are as follows:

Adobe Connect Presenter
The presenter of a meeting and can present content, share a screen, send text messages, moderate questions, create text notes, broadcast audio and video, and push content from web links

Observers can view courses and student grades but may not alter activities. This is a variation on the “Staff” role and should not be assigned to Students. (Not to be confused with Revision Student)

Question sharer
Assign staff to this in a category (or site) containing all the required courses and questions created in the category/site context can be shared.

Revision student
Allow student access to view resources only.  (Not to be confused with Observer)
