What does a student see

The easiest way to see your course site from a student's point of view is using the Student Preview option at the top of the screen.

Student Preview

This is a very useful way to make sure your course works as you expect, for example to check that the correct materials are visible and that any Tests or other activities work correctly. However there are some features that will not work in Student Preview mode:

  • Turnitin assignments
  • Reflect (Panopto) recordings

For more information about Student Preview, including a description of the options when you leave it, see Blackboard's Student Preview help page.
