Blackboard - Edit Mode and Student Preview
Blackboard —Edit Mode and Student Preview
You can turn the Edit Mode on and off to view your available/visible course content and you can use the Enter Student Preview button to review the course content and experience your course exactly as your students do.
In the top right corner of your course you can click the Edit Mode button to turn the Edit Mode on and off.
|When Edit Mode is ON, you see all the course content and the editing controls for each item. Edit Mode OFF hides the editing controls but still displays any content that would normally be hidden from a student. Also, it doesn’t enable you to see student-only content, such as My Grades.|
|Enter Student Preview is another button you can click in the top right corner of your Blackboard course.|
While in student preview mode, you can do the following student activities:
Enter Student Preview Mode
To enter student preview mode, click the Enter Student Preview button, at the top-right corner of your course.
Student preview creates a student account, called the preview user account, logs you in as that student and enrolls you in the current course. When you enter student preview mode, the student preview bar appears at the top of every page. The bar displays the text "Student Preview mode is ON" and has Settings and Exit Preview functions.
When you enter student preview mode and are logged in to your course with the preview user account, your preview user appears in the course roster and is visible to all students enrolled in the course.
As a preview user, Blackboard Learn captures all the data associated with your activities, such as submitted assignments and discussion posts. In fact, other students can interact with your preview user. For example, they can reply to your posts as though you were another student enrolled in the course.
Exit and Delete Your Preview User Account
Click Exit Preview to exit the student preview. You have two options when exiting:
Click Continue when you are finished.
Note: If you leave the course without exiting from student preview, you will return to student preview when you return to the course.
