Hello there, @EnliteCollege1 ...

What do you mean by the "participant role"?  Out of the box, Canvas does not have a "participant" role.  The default roles in Canvas are described in this Guide: What user roles and permissions are available in C... - Instructure Community (canvaslms.com).  I wonder if your school's local Canvas administrator(s) or folks from your school's Online Learning/eLearning department created a custom role called "participant" and configured that role with certain permissions turned on/off.  I would recommend that you reach out to folks at your school who are Canvas administrators to see if you can find out more information about the "participant" role that you are asking about.  Thanks!
