What is Student View?

Student View allows instructors to see the course as a student views it.

There is a separate Test Student account for each course in Sublime LMS. Whenever you move to a new course you will need to activate the Test Student for that course.

Note: Submissions and scores for the Test Student do not affect course analytics.

When would I use Student View?

To see the student's perspective on Sublime LMS, use Student View to:

  • View the course
  • Post and reply to Discussions
  • Submit Assignments
  • View Grades
  • View People
  • View Pages
  • View the Syllabus
  • View Quizzes
  • View the Calendar
  • View the Scheduler (if enabled)
  • Conversations, Collaborations, Groups, and Profile do not work for the Test Student. You will see only what you, as the instructor, allow your students to see.

Note: You can only view the course layout as it is seen by your students. You cannot view student-specific information, such as conversations between students.

View Course as the Test Student

You will see the course as a student. You can tell you are in Student View by noticing that your name changed to Test Student [1] and the persistent bar across the bottom of the screen indicating you are in Student View [2].

Reset Test Student

You can Reset the Test Student to clear the Test Student's history and re-check content in the course. For example, if an instructor created an assignment and submitted it as the Test Student but then forgot to add a certain submission type, the instructor can click the Reset Student button and submit the assignment again as the Test Student.
