Through user management, every user within the LMS gets assigned to a particular permission-based role, which determines what level of access they’ll have to the system. These permission roles usually include:

  • Administrator
  • Group administrator
  • Content manager
  • Instructor
  • Learner

Depending on the permission level, these roles are able to add or remove users, manage the course and group access, manually remove or enrol users in certain groups and courses, add or edit course content, access quizzes and assessment results and finally get access to specific user data.

Effective user management functionality will help you as an LMS owner to ensure the following:

  • Course data security. Only authorized users with specific permission-based roles can view and edit data within the LMS, which reduces the chances of data leaks.
  • Your team’s efficiency. Everyone who has access to the LMS performs a particular role, and their interface is simplified to help them work on their individual responsibilities.

User management is one of the most crucial aspects of running a successful learning product. It allows you to better manage data as well as all activities within the platform to ensure the best learning experience for users.
