View Moodle Site as a Student (for Teachers)

Posted June 2nd, 2019 at 9:50 am.

If at any time you wish to see the course the way a student or TA sees it, you have the option to switch your role.

Click on your name in the upper right-hand corner of Moodle. You should see an option at the bottom of the drop-down menu that says “Switch role to…“. Click this to see a list of roles that you may select (see this post on Add/Remove Users in a Moodle Site for a list of roles and their meanings in Moodle). Please note that this only works inside a course page and is not available on the Dashboard.

Once you select a different role, you may view your course this way, but it won’t let you participate in activities as if you were a student (e.g. take a quiz, submit an assignment, etc.).

When you’re ready to switch back to your regular role, just click on your name again and choose “Return to my normal role“.
