In the Astria LMS, the Teacher role is used to enroll users responsible for course creation, instruction, and management. Teachers are also referred to as instructors in the LMS. In general, users with the Teacher role have permissions that allow them to moderate a course, view course data, and direct daily course communications. However, these permissions may vary among institutions.
Other course-level user roles with varying course-level access exist in the LMS. Designers may work with Teachers (who oversee Teacher Assistants) and together they create course content with which Students and Observers engage.
Teachers may create course materials, view course data, and access and manage all areas of a LMS course. For example, an instructor may be added to a course with the Teacher role to lead a course.
The main uses of the Teacher role are to allow a user to:
Create and modify course content
Moderate and submit grades
Manually invite others to the course
Communicate with course participants
Access course analytics and student data
Monitor and moderate the participation and interactions of all enrolled users in a course
When a user manually creates a course, the LMS automatically enrolls that user as a Teacher in the course. A teacher may also be enrolled in a course manually by an administrator or automatically by SIS import.
By default, instructors with the Teacher role may access all areas of a course. However, these permissions may vary among institutions.
