+After logging into LON-CAPA with your username and password, you will see a screen where you can select your ROLE. LON-CAPA is a roles-based system. You can always use the same login even though your roles may change. You can be an instructor in one class, a TA for another class, and an author of resources -- all with the same username. Selecting \textbf{Roles} on the Main Menu will bring you back to the \textbf{Roles} screen.
+NOTE: If you only have one role, you will bypass this screen.
+Two types of Roles exist in LON-CAPA: Constrution Roles, and Course Roles. Construction roles are used to develop learning resources. The course role is where resources are used. You may have multiple instances of either type of role. For example, each separate course has a course role. You may develop more than one construction space role depending on your depth of usage of LON-CAPA.
