Editing Trainers can do almost anything within a course, including adding or changing the activities and grading Learners.
By default, Editing Trainers can also assign the Trainer role and/or the Learner role to other users. Other capabilities of an Editing Trainer include:
Users are not assigned the role of Editing Trainer throughout the site by default, but are instead assigned (enrolled) as an Editing Trainer to a each course as required, one at a time. The same applies to Learners.
Editing Trainers can only make changes in the courses they have been enrolled in.
If you really need to change the default Editing Trainer role, follow these steps:
Be careful what you allow an Editing Trainer to do whilst you are adjusting the role's permissions/capabilities. Consider the security vulnerabilities of giving an Editing Trainer an inappropriate permission. Only give the Editing Trainer permissions that are necessary or appropriate. To the right of many of the Allow check boxes are coloured triangles that notify you of possible security warnings for each choice. Use those warnings to help you decide which permissions you will or won't give to your Editing Trainers.
|If you need to modify the Editing Trainer role significantly, it is advisable to create a new role rather than editing the default Editing Trainer role.|
