The Importance of Roles in the CoreAchieve LMS Platform

October, 07 2022

Roles are vital to the smooth functioning of any organization, but they need to be understood. This guide gives the how and why of CoreAchieve Roles.

Roles and how they are utilized, are quintessential to the effective operation of any multilevel system and the CoreAchieve LMS platform is no different.  Assigning roles to personnel inside your organization helps to effectively organize your platform. Roles limit what can be done or seen, preventing other users from being overwhelmed by data that is not necessary to their needs or function.


CoreAchieve offers five unique roles to streamline LMS job functions within your organization: Administrator, Attendee Manager, Author, Instructor, and Learner. So, what do these roles look like?


Administrator Role

If you are familiar with administrators (or admins) from other organizations or software, then you already have a good grasp on this role. Administrators are at the very top of the role hierarchy and have all the privileges possible in CoreAchieve which is vital to the overall LMS operation.


The Administrator role is unique in that they will have all access to the other roles, yet their homepage is easy to navigate. Typically, administrators act as overseers. If your organization is small enough, however, it may make sense to have the administrator role be a catch-all.

Attendee Manager Role

An Attendee Manager’s role is to manage the organization of Learners. This role allows the registering of new users, creation of user groups, manage learner enrollment, create learning paths, and track Learner’s training progress including certificates and credits. The homepage of Attendee Manager’s displays user progress and the ability to pull reports.  Assigning learning content and monitoring progress are the two most predominant features.

Author Role

The easiest way to think about an Author’ role is this: they are for learning content what Learners are to Attendee Managers. That is, Authors create, manage, and get analytical reports on learning content. An example of the reports an Author would get is what percentage of Learners got a quiz question wrong, allowing them to tweak the content as needed.


The Authors’ homepage streamlines their work by immediately showing all the different types of learning content they can use, manage, or create.

Instructor Role

Whether it be grading assignments, facilitating discussions, or by delivering in-person (or virtual) instructor led training, Instructors are the people who will get to know your Learners best. Instructors do not focus on building content, but they do focus on how that content is delivered and if it is understood. The focus of the Instructor role is the training activity of the Learner.


The Instructors homepage primary difference is a menu for comments (both new and old) and assessments that have not been graded. Other notable functions of the Instructors role are managing enrollments, monitoring Learners’ progress and attendance, and issuing certificates.

Learner Role

The most straightforward role, Learners are the end user. They can view courses; take quizzes, exams, or assessments; initiate and participate in discussions; and receive and download certificates. Their homepage is focused on the courses they need to take, allowing them to focus on what is most important—their learning.
