User Types in OU Campus

There are two users in OU Campus:

  • Contributors: Student accounts generally are considered a “Contributor” account. Contributors can only alter text on a page that they have access to. Contributors cannot add in new pages, edit page titles, or delete pages.
  • Editors: Staff/Faculty accounts are generally considered an “Editor” account. Editors can edit more page content than contributors and can create new pages.
