Canvas Quick Student View
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Adds the Student View link to all pages in Canvas. Look for the spectacles icon at the top right.

Install to add the Student View link – visible as a "spectacles" icon – on every page at the top right (in the "crumbs" navigation pane) in the Canvas LMS. Enables quick toggling between Student View and regular view without extra navigation. NOTE: as of its December 19, 2020 release, Canvas implements its own built-in Student View link on most pages. This extension now is preset to become hidden on pages where the built-in link is shown, but other options can be selected (see Options page for more info). This extension ONLY works with Canvas URLs of the following types: https://*.instructure.com/* http://*.instructure.com/* https://canvas.gu.se/* For other URL formats, use Canvas Quick Student View (any host), link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/canvas-quick-student-view/hlhfhggndbcoolimgcohdegdfpcbphhj Please find the complete manual at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ZKHJh4_61pG4fbn743XW4qTAUCr41xaI?usp=sharing Please join https://groups.google.com/d/forum/canvas-quick-student-view for questions, bug reports etc.

Easily switch to student view in Canvas. Normally, you would have to go to Home, then Student View, then find the page that you wanted to view - very tedious. This extension lets you just click the glasses icon on any page, and instantly switch into student view. Awesome! Thank you!

Hi Brian (or is it Julia? A Julia Ash said on the Canvas community forum she'd rated the extension)! Glad you liked it. Isn't it remarkable that the suggestion has been sitting on the forum for 5 years and nothing's happened from Instructure's side? Well – as we say in Swedish, don't curse the darkness, light a candle instead :)
