[LON-CAPA-users] Creating Sections

No custom role required.  In addition to "Course Coordinator" roles, which can
change course content, there is also an "Instructor" role, that cannot. 
However, I believe the instructor can change *all* parameters (accessed via the
parm button) for his/her section, including weights, due dates, and even
excusing problems for the entire section.

When assigning an individual the instructor role (usually done as a Course
Coordinator with the CUSR button), you can specify which sections the
individual has control over.

Hope that helps,
