- Sometimes, it can be useful to view the course…from another perspective.…For example, a student might report…not being able to see something,…or you might want to try submitting an assignment…or attempting a quiz to see what students experience.…To try this out, let's go to…the Administration block on the left-hand side.…We'll expand the Switch role to menu,…and we'll select Student.…Now you can view resources and participate in activities…just as the students would.…Note, you won't see anything you've hidden.…
You can take a quiz or submit an assignment…to make sure you've set up the activity correctly,…but the results will not be saved.…When you're finished investigating the environment…or whatever the student reported,…go back to the Administration block,…and click select Return to my normal role.…As a side note, you can also select this option…in the top-right corner,…where it says you're logged in as.…If you want, you can also switch your role…to non-editing teacher or even guest,…if you've enabled guest access.…
