These course editor roles have almost the same rights, most of the time you will assign Teacher. Teacher admin has additional rights to advanced functions (copy contents between courses, like restore, import, etc.), teacher assistant can not assign other course editors to the course.

Student: The basic "viewer" role, hidden content is not visible for him, can take part in activities.

Visitor: A special "viewer" role. They can view all hidden contents, but can not view or take part in activities. This is the best role for managers of a program, or collegues who are not teaching in the class, just would like to view the contents.

Guest (special): These users does not have an account, if you enable "Guest access" in a course, anyone can access it without an account and login.
