Blackboard’s Student View Application is now available. This tool allows you to experience your course just like a student. Use the tool to navigate through content, participate in activities, and complete assessments, all as a demo student.
For the Fall of 2012 semester you will need to enable the Student View Application in each of your courses by accessing the Control Panel > Customization > Tool Availability. Starting in the Spring of 2013 this tool will automatically be enabled in all courses. Once enabled, you can access Student View from the Control Panel > Course Tools.
Click on the tool to switch to Student View and access the course as a demo student. The log-in name at the top right of the screen will verify that you are in student view (i.e. Your Name (Demo Student). To return to the instructor view, click the Teacher View link that appears at the bottom of the course menu.
