View as Student Removed from Navigation Bar – 1 December 2018

Effective from 1 December 2018 the functionality to “View as Student” will be removed from the Navigation bar.

Change of role to student

This “view” enables an overview of the unit in the role selected, however it does not provide a complete student view and causes confusion.   Viewing the content through this option does not have permissions attached, cannot be graded, and does not support the use of quizzes.

The preferred method for lecturers or tutors to view their unit as a student, is to impersonate the Student View User through the Class List option in MyLO. The Student View User is created and assigned to all units to enable accurate testing of what a student will see.

An article detailing how to impersonate the Student View User is available here and along with a short video
