Faculty Student Account

The best way to view your course and assist your students is with a student account. If a student mentions they cannot see a Discussion Topic, use the student account to see the course from their perspective. You can then troubleshoot on the spot and perhaps fix the issue quickly. This is different from the "View as Banner_Student" option.
