Impersonating a Test Student

In VU Collaborate, you have the ability to experience a space from a student's perspective by using the Impersonate option. For this purpose, each VU Collaborate space has a TestStudent, space name/code in the Classlist. By impersonating the test student you can view content exactly as a student does, attempt quizzes as a student, use a checklist and more.

2. Select Impersonate.


3. Click Yes on the confirmation prompt.


3. You will now be able to view and use your space as a student would. In this view, the test students name will appear in your minibar.
