How do WordPress roles work with WP Courseware?

The Administrator role can create courses, configure courses, create modules, create units, create quizzes and assign units to modules. Administrators can also create quizzes/surveys, and quiz questions as well. Also, users with the administrator role can manage and edit courses created by someone with the instructor role.

The Instructor role can create courses, configure courses, create modules, create units, create quizzes and assign units to modules. Instructors can also create quizzes/surveys, and quiz questions as well. However, users with the instructor role are limited to viewing and editing the courses they authored. They can't see courses, modules, units, quizzes/surveys or questions created by other administrators or instructors.

A unit is simply a custom post type so the various roles apply just as they would for a regular post. 

  • Editor - Somebody who can publish and manage posts and pages as well as manage other users' posts, etc.
  • Author - Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts
  • Contributor - Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish them
Your student's would be subscribers. The student must be logged in as a subscriber & be enrolled into a course in order to view course units.
  • Subscriber - Somebody who can only manage their profile and view course units
