Creating custom user roles in Moodle Direct V2

If you are adding custom user roles within Moodle, they should have appropriate capabilities attached to them. For example, a teacher should have different capabilities within Moodle than a student.

Creating custom user roles can only be done by the site administrator by navigating to Site Administration > Users > Permissions > Define Roles.

 

  1. To create a new role, select Add a new role beneath the role table.
  2. On this page, you can use a role or archetype as a template for the role you are creating, or you can upload a preset. Doing nothing here will create a blank role for you to configure. Select Continue to move to the next step, or Cancel to abort the process.
  3. Set up the role as you would like it by adding a short name and full name to the role that will make sense for your work flow. The Context types for the role should be set to Course and Activity Module.
  4. Select the rest of the settings, where appropriate, until you reach Activity: Turnitin Assignment. Please reference the Teacher and Student tables below to select the permissions.
