Delphinium Roles

Delphinium has only two roles: students and teachers. These two roles are linked to Canvas roles. If you have customized your Canvas roles, you may need to tell Delphinium which Canvas roles function as students or teachers.

Custom Canvas roles can also be designated as a Delphinium page initializer if they have the correct Canvas permissions. If a user with a Canvas role does not have the correct permissions to initialize a course, they will be notified that they have missing permissions if they are the first user to load a Delphinium course.
