LearnPad Tablets for Schools: ClassConnect Portal User Roles Explained

User Roles Explained

April 23, 2014

LearnPad allows you to assign or invite users to your organisation.
You are able to assign different user roles depending upon the level of access each user requires.
When you first register a LearnPad account you have the option to join an existing organisation or create a new organisation.



If you choose to create a new organisation, you will become the first user associated with that organisation and will be assigned OWNER rights. You are then able to invite other registered users to join your organisation.

Please Note: If you are not sure if your school has already set up an organisation, please contact your ICT Co-Ordinator or Network Manager. Duplicated accounts will not contain the correct licenses and will not allow you to use dashboard features.

Changing an Assigned Role
Users with a role of OWNER or ADMIN can change another user’s role from within the management portal at any time.
1) Log in to your organisation.
2) Click on the organisation name at the top right hand side of the screen.

3) Expand the users menu and select from the user types available.
