When creating a course in Blackboard, it is good practice to view the course from the student’s perspective. I recommend that you do this before you leave Blackboard to ensure your course is working the way you expect. Viewing your course from a student’s perspective is also a way to test quizzes and exams to ensure they are working correctly. The three ways are:
- Turn edit mode off
- Select the student preview
- Log in as a test student. You must first add the student test account (do only once…ever). Once the user has been created, you must enroll user in course.
There is also a student preview user account that Blackboard discusses. It is associated with the student preview. This link also shows turning on and off the edit mode and selecting the student preview.
