Can I use a test student in Brightspace?

In the process of adding content to your course in Brightspace it can be helpful to preview content as a student. You can use a test student to check if everything works and shows as it was intended. There are multiple options to do so. 

  1. To view the course from the perspective of a student you can use View as student
  2. If you want to experience specific content from the perspective of a student you can use the Dummystudent; a fictional student you can add to a course and impersonate.

Please contact your faculty ICT support if you would like to use a dummystudent in a designated course. The dummystudent will appear in your class list after confirmation of the ICT support. ICT support will also remove the dummystudent if you don't need it anymore.
