Roles and permissions

Keep control over the permissions and access of your users.

Updated over a week ago

Didacte proposes 6 different levels of access to the users of your platform.

These allow you to have control over the permissions and restrictions of each members, while giving you flexibility in its usage.

Each access level enjoys the benefits of its predecessor in addition to additional permissions.

The accesses are divided into 6 distinct levels:


Representing the entry level on your platform, the student role has read-only permissions. It can only consult courses and enroll in public and "per enrollment request" courses.


The author represents a content expert in your organization. This role allows you to collaborate and have your key employees contribute in the content creation process. This role comes with limited permissions, focused on creating/editing course content and nothing more.

A teacher can invite an unlimited number of authors on a training course in order to delegate the creation of the course syllabus and the content to be integrated into it.

The author cannot publish courses or modify the general information of a course, which makes it the perfect role to decentralize the responsibility for creating a course plan.


As the name suggests, the teacher has the power to create and modify his own courses. It's a role that is focused on creating/modifying content.

The teacher has access to a portion of the enrollments, completions and sales reports, scoped to the performance of the courses to which he is assigned. He also can manually correct quizzes from his courses.

An administrator can also assign a teacher to an already existing course.

Resource Person

As Didacte allows the creation and management of your in-person courses, we have created a role that meets the specific needs of this type of training.

Although in-person courses have the same benefits as any online training, the addition of the session concept empowers our clients to offer multiple sessions of the same training, at different locations simultaneously.

Since the designated teacher can only be present at one of these locations, it is possible to designate a resource person per session who will be responsible for registration and attendance management of the representation.

Resource persons can view the course's content without having to enroll. They also have access to quiz/exams corrections of each participants attending the session to which he is assigned to.


The "Provider" role allows an external content provider to use your platform as a distribution channel. Each provider is assigned a corporate section to put their general information and contacts.

The provider can be responsible of one or many teachers. Benefiting from the same permissions as the teacher, the provider is given read and change permissions on courses under his supervision, in addition to consulting consolidated performance reports from his trainers.

Note: an external teacher can be defined as his own provider.


Representing the most powerful role on your platform, the administrator has full control and access to the platform.

Use caution when assigning the administrator role to a user.

However, do not worry, even though an administrator can remove the administrator access from anyone he or she wants, the owner of the platform (the primary administrator generated when the platform is created) can not be removed by peers.

Only the platform's owner or our team can edit this title.

User Permissions

Group supervisor

The group supervisor feature is a special permission that can be granted to one or more people in charge of a group of users.

As this is a special permission, it is not an administrative role per se.

Course partners

In addition to the 5 primary roles of users in Didacte, the course partners feature was added in order to provide more flexibility to our clients who are working with industry experts and external ressources.
