- [Instructor] One of my favorite features inside of Moodle…is the ability to switch roles…or to look at your course…through the perspective of someone else,…for example, a student.…Now with recent versions of Moodle,…this is easier than ever.…The way I can do this…is by navigating to the top right…next to my profile picture.…I'll select this dropdown menu, and at the bottom,…I'm going to choose switch role to.…From here, I can choose what I want to see this as…and I'm going to select a student.…So now I'm viewing my course…from the perspective of a student.…
Here is how your students will see your course.…This is important later on when you start to add activities,…assignments, quizzes, and other things.…It's important to look at them…through the perspective of your students…to make sure that it looks the way you want it to.…Now when I'm done,…I can go back up to the top…and then go down to return to my normal role.…So take advantage of this feature inside of Moodle…and look at your course through the eyes of your students.…
