Access control for the resources managed by an e-learning system should be such that it should be possible to define an access level for each artifact and for each single person. This would allow building controlled personalized paths. Unfortunately, if implemented in a straightforward way, such control drags a huge amount of resources and is therefore unfeasible. We propose and implement an approach based on the notion of inheritance that makes it possible to achieve a fine-grained control without consuming an unreasonable amount of machine resources.
