Things you didn’t know about the JZero Learning Management System #10

This post is part of a series looking at the varying functionality in JLMS.

Things you might not know about JLMS – Multiple Administration Levels

Administration of an LMS can be an arduous task and it therefore helps if you can spread the load of admin tasks across multiple Administrators.

However, you might not want every Administrator to have the same level of access. You will want some people to have full access but perhaps have some others with just access to manage Classroom content, or to just look after the branding.

JLMS provides multiple levels of Administration to facilitate this. In fact, we have 9 levels of Administrator profiles to facilitate this!

  • Company Admin: this level provides full access to all admin functions
  • General Admin Level 2: this is a reduced access level allowing all users to be administered
  • General Admin Level 1: this is a further reduced access level allowing all users to be administered
  • Group Admin Level 2: this is a reduced access level where only users who match the organisational group profile of the admin can be administered
  • Group Admin Level 1: this is a further reduced access level where only users who match the organisational group profile of the admin can be administered
  • Graphic Administrator: this access level can only use the personalisation options
  • Event Co-ordinator: this role is specific to the classroom content management and can only administer classes who they are the Co-ordinator for
  • Internal Instructor: this role is for people who deliver internal classes and is specific to the classroom content management and can only administer classes who they are the Instructor for
  • External Instructor: this role is for people who deliver external classes and is specific to the classroom content management and can only administer classes who they are the Instructor for

Default access rights are provided for each of the above Administration levels, however the Company Admin level has the ability to further edit these access rights to add or remove functions from each level’s rights.

What’s more, these settings can be changed at any time, so you don’t have to sort them all out on day 1, you can review them on an ongoing basis and make the tweaks you need as you go.

So using multiple levels of Administration can keep control on your admins and what they can have access to, plus spread the overhead of your Administration tasks across a wider group.

Happy learning!!
