Switching user roles in your institution

In early chapters, you looked at Mahara through the eyes of a standard site member. In this chapter so far you have been working as an institution member. There is a third site role that you haven't looked at yet called staff.

Staff have the ability above a standard member to:

  • Create controlled groups
  • Allow course roles in their group — turning them into course groups that can have tutors

Moving people in and out of the member, institution staff, and institution administrator statuses of your institution couldn't be easier.
