About this article

This article demonstrates how to view a Brightspace course table of contents from a student's perspective. It describes the Manage Content feature of the Brightspace Content Tool, used to organize and manage existing files in a Brightspace course.

Switching Brightspace roles

One the home page, locate the Role Switch widget. By default, it appears in the left column, toward the bottom of the widget list.

  1. Click on the arrow after Teacher in the Current Role dropdown box.
  2. Select Student.
  3. Click Change Role.

You will now see Brightspace courses in the student's perspective. (Note: If you look at certain areas of the course, like the Grades, you will not see a student version of the grades as you have no grades in the gradebook.)
