Access Rights “The permissions that are granted to a user, or to an application, to read, write and erase files in the computer. Access rights can be tied to a particular client or server, to folders within that machine or to specific programs and data files” (PCMag, n.d.).

 Administrator  Manager (User)  Instructor (User)  Student (User) An administrator determines the access rights of a user. The users include the administrator, manager, instructor, and student. The types of access rights that a user is assigned depend on his/her role. For instance, a student will only need the ability to read files, but an instructor will need the ability to read, write, and delete files (Schroeder, 2013).
