Moodle: View site as a student
If at any time you wish to see the course the way a student or other participant sees it, you have the option to switch your role.
Before you start, you may need the following:
- an Instructor of Record or Other Editing Teacher role in a Bryn Mawr Moodle course.
View Moodle as a student
- Click on your initials to access the drop-down menu. Select Switch role to… to see a list of roles that you may select (See this post on Moodle: Enroll or unenroll participants for a list of roles and their meanings in Moodle). Please note that this only works inside a course page and is not available on the Dashboard.
- Once you select a different role, you may view your course through the perspective of that specific role, but it won’t let you participate in activities as if you were a student (e.g. take a quiz, submit an assignment, etc.). After that role is selected, it will be labeled next to your initials.
- When you’re ready to switch back to your regular role, just click on your initials again and choose Return to my normal role.
