How does my Moodle course look to my students?
To view your Moodle course the way students see it, go into your User Profile pull-down menu > “Switch role to…” and click on the “Student” button.
This is useful if you decide to set up resources and activities ahead of time that you’d like to hide and then make available later on in the semester. By switching your role to Student, you will be viewing the course from a student’s perspective but still logged in as the instructor of the course. You will not see any hidden resources or activities when you’re viewing the course as a student.
Simply click on the “Return to my normal role” link to view the course as the instructor.
