      Description

      Flagged as "major" because I think this would reduce much confusion at a stroke.

      Currently:

      Course creators can create new courses and teach in them.

      The teaching permissions come form the teacher role to which the CC is assigned on creating the course not the CC role.

      Suggested improvement.

      Course creators can create new courses.

      Sort of obvious but that does describe the role in a nutshell.

          Assign this to Helen - she does English

          I think it's a left over from the pre-roles time

          Ray, thanks for your report. I've changed the wording as you suggested in 1.9.8 and HEAD.

          Great, thanks. I think this small change will help lots of new Moodle users get to grips with roles.

          Cheers
