How do I create course-level roles in an account?
You can create course-level roles in Canvas. Course roles are granted to each Canvas user and define the type of access each user has in the course. Default roles include student, teacher (instructor), teacher assistant (TA), designer, and observer, but you can also create custom course-level roles depending on the needs of your institution.
Once a role is created, you can set course-level permissions.
Note: When a user receives an enrollment invitation for a course role, the invitation displays the name of the base role.
