Back to D2L Tutorials

Every Banner-enrolled course shell in D2L automatically contains a student guest account per CRN section (crosslisted courses will have multiple guest accounts). Faculty can use this account to see what students see and get a sense of the student course experience. Popular uses include submitting assignments, taking quizzes, and viewing feedback and content.

  1. Click the People menu from within the course you wish to test.
  2. Click Classlist from the People dropdown menu.
  3. Locate the Guest Account in the classlist.
  4. Click the down caret next to Account, Guest and select Impersonate.
  5. Confirm the dialogue box.
  6. You are now impersonating the Guest Account and can experience most aspects of the course as a student would.

Stop Impersonating

  1. Click Guest Account impersonating in the upper right corner of your screen.
  2. Click the X next to Impersonating: Guest Account.
