II. Roles and Account Types within the ILE application

1. Roles
Users of ILE fall into three roles, administrators, instructors, or students. The graphic below describes performable functions of each role.
describes the three roles of administrator, instructor, and student

2. Account Types
ILE was originally designed to be used primarily with active directory authentication, while having the ability to accommodate non-active directory authenticated students, by creating an account type of Non-Institute. Users with the account type of Non-Institute are granted the same permissions as users with the account type of Student. ILE was not originally designed to accommodate instructors and administrators who did not authenticate with active directory. ILE has since been modified to accommodate non-active directory authenticated users of all account types.
Administrators of ILE installations where active directory is not used, should be aware that users will need to create their own accounts. After accounts have been established, administrators can use the Edit User portion of the Manage Users page to elevate permissions for a Non-Institute user by simply hitting the update button. This will change the account type from Non-Institute to Instructor. Access to particular classes and sections can then be granted using the Edit Classes feature.
Four Account Types
Student - share the lowest level of permissions with users with the Non-Institute role, and are able to access class content
Non-Institute - share the lowest level of permissions with users with the Student role, and are able to access class content
Instructor - In addition to the content that a student or non-institute user has, instructors also have access to "Instructor Content" including grading, feedback, and login statistic features
Administrator - Have access to the all available options and settings in ILE
