Q. How can I see my Blackboard class as if I was a student?

Edit mode and Student View


Using the Student View Tool in Blackboard

The Student View building block provides a pure student view of the course to any instructor. 

To view your course as a student, complete the following steps:

  1. On the Control Panel, expand Course Tools and select Student View.

  2. The screen will refresh.

  3. You are now logged into your course as the Demo Student. You can do everything that a student would, including viewing content and taking assessments.

Using this feature will enroll a demo student in your course that will show up in the Grade Center. The demo students name will be "Demo Student," its username will be similar to this example: bb_demo_749001

To return to the Teacher View:

  1. On the Course Menu, click Return To Teacher View

  2. The screen will refresh.

  3. You are now back to being you, logged into your course as an Instructor.
