view as Student

It might be a good idea to move the view as teacher-student-guest switch to the sidebar on the left hand.

When you're editing the planner and you want to view the planner as an student you first have to go back to the course dashboard before you can toggle the switch. It would be more practical to be able to switch from the sidebar because it is always visible.

 

see the image I included, ofcourse the view as menu should be collapsed in my image.

    Hi,

    after the back to school update this autumn the student view and the teacher view are so alike that there should be no need for the old teacher-student-guest switch. Please have a look at the attached example from the course overview page. Teachers have post and edit rights that students don't have. Students have a Task menu and teachers a Follow-up tasks menu. The rest of the two views are alike.

    Also a view as group may be a good idea as many of our courses have group permissions?

    Is this coming back in the new interface?

    Thank you all for engaging yourself in bringing back the “view as student”. We always try to get things right, but sometimes, despite good intentions and usability testing we recognize that things could have been done differently…So, based on feedback from all off you we’re now about to start piloting a “view as student” feature. We’re starting with a few pilot customers, but will expand with more customers after a while.

    Too early to say when “view as student” will be available for all customers, but as soon as I know I’ll let you know :-)

    As a teacher, have you ever wondered what your course looks like for your students? 😉

    I know you have, and I hope you’ll be happy to hear that “View your course as a student” is planned for back to school.

    What else is coming for back to school?

    You’ll find videos, webinar recording and more about what’s coming for back to school here: https://itslearning.com/global/back-to-school/

    I really like that this idea has been impemented and it is a feature I use frequently! It would be even awesome-er if I did not get sent back to the course overview page when I change view. So here is an idea for improvement: Stay at same element when changing who you view as.
