Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the student view, part of Learning Management System (LMS) Fundamentals.
…When designing a course inside of an LMS, it's important to…keep in mind how the student is going to view the course.…Now, some LMSs such as Edmodo, the layout of the…LMS is very similar to what the student's going to see.…The only difference will be some changes in the sidebars and the navigation.…For example, students won't have the ability to lock and…unlock a group, but they will have access to things…such as the class planner as well as the library,…the progress towards their goals, and the course home page.…In a lot of LMSs, however, there's a lot of additional features added for the…instructor view, and understanding exactly what the…student sees takes a little bit of work.…
Here in Canvas, on the Settings page, I can click the Student…View button in order to view this course from the student perspective.…I can see exactly how the main navigation will appear on the left hand…side and you'll notice the right hand side of the screen is a lot cleaner.…I can now navigate through the course under…the Student View to understand how everything's flowing.…
