In canvas, instructors can view their course from the point of view of a student using Student View. Here is how to access Student View:
- Click the Settings link in the Course Navigation Menu of your course.
- Click the Student View button to access Student View.
- You can now view the course as a student would see it. For example, students cannot see the Settings navigation link like instructors can. Note: You will know if you are in Student View because of the persistent bar on the bottom of the screen indicating you are logged into Student View.
- Click the Leave Student View button to exit the student view. Note: You can also reset the Test Student by clicking Reset Student. This will clear all history for the student allowing you to start with a clean slate.
