Default user role

This might be a stupid question, but I can't seem to find an answer to this:


With my admin account I've added a new user manually and I'd like for him to be able to create a course. I can change a user's role and make him/her an admin via the admin area - but where do I change a user's role to something as ordinary as "Instructor" or "Teacher"?


Is the system logic that you tie users to a course (and assign them the role that is appropriate for that course) and not that you assign a default role (that then again might be changed on a course level)?


I'm just thinking that if I have a teacher who would like to create 10 courses then I have to create the 10 courses and assign him to each of these. It would be easier if I could just assign him a teacher role and he'd be able to create the courses himself.
