Enabling Student View in Canvas

While designing your Canvas course, you can use course settings to enable student view.

  • Log into Canvas.
  • Select a course from the dropdown menu.
  • Select Settings from the left-hand sidebar.
  • Select Student View from the right-hand menu.

You will now be able to view your Canvas course as your students see it. Note that the display in the upper right-hand corner has changed from your name to Test Student.

When you have finished using student view, select Leave Student View from the menu in the upper right-hand corner. The display name will return from Test Student to your name and you can continue working with your Canvas course as you did before.
