D2L - How Faculty Can See Student View of the Content Page
The Student View option for instructors can be a useful tool to make sure proper settings have been applied while building a D2L course. It allows instructors to view content, quizzes, and discussions as a student in the course would. It is particularly useful for verifying that date restrictions and visibility settings have been properly set up.
1. Navigate to the desired course page.
2. Click the drop down menu next to your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
3. Click View as Student.
NOTE: You are now viewing the course as a student would see it. Any viewing restrictions or conditional releases you have set up will now be applied. In order to return to instructor view, click the drop down menu next to your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and then click Stop viewing as Student.
