For a while we use to have a “researcher” role. This is intermediate between freelancer and instructor role. It is required this role for experienced freelancers who are not ready yet to be instructors.
A researcher can register a private project for hosting and also can create new articles. What researchers can not do is to add or modify quiz questions. This job is reserved for instructors.
If you do not know your role yet 🙂 then you can visit your own profile and check-it out. If you wish to be promoted, follow a class and take a quiz. Then post a forum article about your experience.
Once you have done this you can claim your new role using a support ticket. We may notice your activity if you post articles on the forum and you will get a title automatically for your activity.
