Roles and Permissions

Overview

Roles and Permissions are set to allow certain functionality to different users. Permissions correspond to the tools in D2L.  For example, the ability to create discussion topics or edit the grade book.  Permissions are assigned to roles and then roles are assigned to users. When a user accesses an org unit, they have access to the features set up for their role in that org unit.
