I'm teaching with Moodle. I'm the website administrator. I want to give a school administrator the ability to see the website, but not edit anything. The "non-editing teacher" still would allow the administrator some abilities I don't want her to have. I could make her a student, but that may have some drawbacks - such as her receiving email notices whenever I post to the News Forum. I see that I can change the permissions that a "non-editing teacher" has. I'm hesitant to start changing the permissions, but that may be the best option. Can I create a new role, such as Admin Who Can Only Look?
What do you recommend?
I still think there should be a "subscribe to this thread" option in the Moodle forums. I want to know when a particular thread has new content, but I don't always want to receive notifications about EVERY thread in a forum.
