How to Use the Student View in Blackboard

Blackboard instructors can view a course exactly as a student sees it in order to verify the availability of items to students, try an assessment from a student's point of view, or to see what the course looks like as a student generally.

To view a course from the point of view of a student, select "Go To Student View" from the top-right of your course site.

This will create a demo student called "Demo User" in your course.  You will become the demo student and you will be able to click around your course and see what it is like from the point of view of a student.

When you are ready to return to the instructor's view of the course, click "Return to Teacher View" at the top-right.

If you submitted an assignment or took a test while using the Student View, when you return to Instructor view, you will find the results in the Grade Center under the student name "User, Demo" (Demo User).  This Demo User is temporary and will be deleted automatically within 24 hours.

We hope you find the Student View useful in your course.
