How do I switch my role to a student in my GauchoSpace course site?

There are two main methods to view GauchoSpace as a student: switching role to student for temporary view and adding a test student account to interact as a student with all activities and resources.

To temporarily view your course site as a student:

  1. Log in to GauchoSpace and enter your course site.
  2. In the Administration block, click on the arrow next to Switch Role To...
  3. Select Student.
  4. When you are done viewing your site, click Return to my normal role in the Administration block.

 

To add yourself into a course as a student, using a non-UCSB address:

This is particularly useful for viewing complete activity processes such as submitting assignments, taking quizzes and viewing grades. In this method, you are creating a test student account for yourself that can be added to all future course sites for this type of activity testing.

  1. Log in to GauchoSpace and enter your course site.
  2. Under the UCSB Course Tool block, click Add User/Assign Roles.
  3. Click Add Non-UCSB User.
  4. Input a non-UCSB email address.
  5. Add your first name with "(test student)" in parentheses and add your last name.
  6. Check the Student box.
  7. Click Add Non-UCSB User.

This will send your provided email a message with information to create password to log-in using the new "student" name. Your email will become your username for your test student account. Once you are logged in, you have a student view, are able to complete all assignments, and have an entry in the grade book.

If you wish to remove yourself as a student after all of your testing is complete, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to GauchoSpace and enter your course site.
  2. In the Administration block, click on the arrow next to Users, then click Enrolled Users.

  3. Search for the participant you wish to remove from your course.
  4. Click the "x" at the end of the line to remove the manually added user from the course site.
  5. Confirm removal by clicking Continue on the next screen.
