User roles

There are five user roles at Lingvomaster:

  1. Guest (if you’re not registered)
  2. Student
  3. Author
  4. Teacher
  5. Administrator


Guests can:

  • Register at the portal
  • View all the main site parts: Portal News, Course catalogue, Help, Contact, About and other
  • View Course Info pages
  • View demo pages of the courses (please, consider that not all courses have their demo pages. Some authors don’t create any demo pages)

After registration users get a default user role “Student”. Students apply for courses for further online learning. Students can:

  • Upgrade their accounts and become Authors and Teachers

  • Manage course teachers by inviting them to the course
  • Add texts, tasks, audio, video content and tests to the course
