Tech Tip Tuesday - Creating A Test Student

-Did you ever wonder what your course looks like to your students?
-Do you ever get emails from students saying they can't see something or find something but you know it's there?
-Do you ever add something to your course and want to make sure it works?

As an instructor your view can be very different from the student view.

You can easily check the student view by creating a test student account and adding them to your course.

This video tutorial explains how to do just that.

Some key points to remember:
    1. Your test student password does not have to be the same as your Stevenson password.

    2. When you are asked to change your Stevenson password you DO NOT change this one.

    3. Make it a very simple password you can remember, like 'student'.

    4. Remember to take your test student in and out of your course since they will show up in the grade book etc.
