    Renaming Roles

    Renaming Moodle's default role names - such as "student" or "teacher" - can be useful when Moodle is used for a committee or conference instead of a course. In these cases, assign a name for certain roles that make more sense for how you are using Moodle, such as "committee member" or "conference administrator." Renaming a role changes the name, but not the underlying permissions associated with the role .

    1. Turn editing on 
    2. In the Navigator under Settings, click Edit settings
    3. Under Role Renaming, type a new name for a particular role/permission
      *you do not have to change all the role names, only those that you use
    4. Save changes

      false
