Viewing As Student in Buzz

There are a few ways to view Buzz from the student perspective.

  • The individual student gradebooks do have a parallel view to what a student will see in their Grades. This includes seeing the Activity Stream (STREAM) and TO-DO LIST. You can access this view by:
    • Selecting the student’s name in the Course Gradebook.
      • Click here to learn more about the Gradebook.
    • Selecting the student’s name in People. 
      • Click here to learn more about People.

  • The View as feature in Buzz allows you to view the Activities as the student or group of students. The steps below in this article will highlight how to use View as.

TIP: Click View as to jump to those specifics.
