User Management>Registering Users
Every person in the LMS is assigned a permission-based role that determines what access level they have to various areas of the LMS. These roles include: user, administrator, group administrator, and instructor.
- User: By default, all learners added to the LMS are assigned the role of user. A user is equivalent to the role of a student. Users do not have access to system data and only have access to their learner home page. The role of a user is to complete assigned and optional course content. An administrator can also assign the role of administrator, group administrator, or instructor to a user.
- Administrator: An administrator (also referred to as super administrator) has access to all levels of the LMS. It is the only role that can assign other roles and view data for the entire system. Administrators manage, direct, and deliver all learning activities. They can also manage users, upload courses, create learning paths, and generate reports to track user progress.
Note: Knowledge Anywhere typically designates administrators as part of the LMS deployment process. A set number of administrators is allowed, depending on what tier your organization is on. If you want to add additional administrators, you will be subject to an additional monthly fee.
- Group Administrator: Group administrators manage and monitor user activity for groups that they are assigned to manage. Group administrators have limited access to system data and are restricted to managing only information relevant to their assigned group.
- Instructor: Instructors manage course registration and attendance for their assigned classroom course offerings. Instructors have limited access to system data and are restricted to viewing only information relevant to their assigned classroom course.
