1 TA-Manage gradebook adds the capability to edit gradebook setup, and can only be assigned to a TA already enrolled in your course.
2 Course Designer can be used in two ways: to add capabilities for a TA (for example to upload files), or as a stand-alone role.
3 Course Assistant can only be assigned to a user from within an activity or resource, not for the entire course.
Post to Announcements cannot be assigned to a Course Designer if that is their only role in the course.
