What are user roles and permissions in Practice?

Users are assigned roles at two different levels: the group level and the organization level. Each role has its own set of permissions that govern what the user role can and cannot do. With the exception of the organization admin (admin), a user can assume different roles in different groups. For example, a learner in one group can be an instructor in a separate group. 

 The organization-level roles are member, coordinator, author, and admin. The group-level roles are learner, reviewer, and instructor. Admins can change the group- and organization-level role of all users in an organization.

Note: Admins cannot change their own role.
