Q. How do you get content creation rights on the platform?

The platform has set protocols for user roles and functionalities. The user base follows a certain hierarchy, where the administrators provide rights and permissions to other users, based on need, to accomplish their tasks across the platform.

  • Content Creator
  • Content Reviewer
  • Flag Reviewer
  • Course Mentor
  • Announcement Sender
  • Course creator
  • Course Admin
  • Org Moderator
