Canvas Tip of the Week: Student View

Have you ever wondered what students actually see when they are in one of your courses? Or have you ever wanted to experience a quiz from a student’s perspective before deploying it? Student View makes this possible! Simply click on the Settings link from a course’s navigation bar and then on the Student View button located on the right-hand sidebar. You will now experience the course just as one of your student users would! To return back to normal, simply click the Leave Student View button located at the bottom of the page.

To learn more about Canvas and other technologies that can be used to enhance teaching and learning, please contact the Center for Digital Media (CDM) at extension 4930 or or visit our website at
