Import vs. Edit Permissions

Jump to solution

I would like to define a role where a user will be able to see content and import it into their own course but not edit it.  

For example, we could have a "History 101 Repository course" that Instructor A controls and Instructor B cannot edit. Instructor B can, however, browse all the content as from a Student or Observer role. Then, Instructor B can import content from that course into her own History 101 course in which she is enrolled as a Teacher, and edit it as normal.  

Is there a way to make that possible?

Good evening, @BradThames ...

You can absolutely do this!  In fact, back in 2017 I wrote a blog on how to accomplish this.  I'm no longer at that college, but I'm pretty sure that custom "Viewer" role still exists (at least it did before I left in August).  Here is the link for you:

Our Custom "Viewer" Role for "Master" Courses

Please let me know if you have any questions about this.  You can reply here on directly on my blog page.  😊

This is great, @Chris_Hofer!  We created a role the same way you described on your blog and it worked exactly the way we hoped.  Thanks a bunch!

 

That is great to hear, @BradThames!  Thanks for reporting back!
