Create a free trial student account

The only way to view your course exactly as a student sees it is to create a Writer's Help 2.0 student account by signing up for free trial access.

You will need to use a different e-mail address from your Writer's Help 2.0 instructor account.

Preview course as a student

You can also access a student preview when you are signed in as an instructor, but this view will not be exactly the same as a student's experience of the site.

For example, you may still have the option to edit assignments while previewing them, or you may see instructor-specific messaging like in the screenshot below.

If you still want to use this method:

When logged in as an instructor, click Preview as Student.


Navigate in student mode

Once the page loads, you will be in student view. To serve as a reminder, there will be a yellow bar at the top of your screen.

To return to instructor view, click Return to Faculty View within the yellow bar.
