This section provides an overview of the different roles that can be applied within Learn.
Student and Instructor are the primary roles that are given for most courses. Any EUCLID fed courses should have students enrolled via their course in EUCLID as these are the 'Golden Copy'.
However a number of additional role types are available and can be applied to users on your course if required. All roles can be assigned to individuals in a course manually, but some of the roles can also be automatically fed from EUCLID.
