There are three ways to do this.

  • First, you can use the Role Switch option on your course Home Page to temporarily adopt a student role instead of your ‘default’ instructor role.
  • A second means is to use the Preview function available in the Gradebook, Quizzes, and Dropbox.
  • Third, you can enroll a fake student in your course, which will allow you to mimic all actions and see all views the way a student does (but ONLY if the course site is already “Active”).

For step-by-step instructions regarding all three of these options, please see our “Student View in D2L” tutorial.
