What is a User Group? 

A user group can be defined as the collection of users who share some of the common privileges. By default, the following user groups are created. 

Admin: These users have extensive control over everything that can be customized, ranging from courses to themes. 

Trainer: They can create and edit courses and paths and edit certain other things that are related to training delivery. 

Learner: Learners have limited control over the system. They can control their own accounts, enroll, and start courses and get certifications.
