Sub-Account Admins - Student View?

Jump to solution

I realized today that some of our Sub-Account Admins to not have the options of "Student View" unless they are added as a teacher to the specific course. I checked the permissions and cannot find one that seems like we have turned that off as an option for Sub-Account Admins, nor does it seem like one that is turned on for teachers. Since our Sub-Account Admins act as in a supporting role to instructors, it would be great if they could have this option. 

Has anyone else had this issue? Or found a work-around?

FYI in case anyone else has this issue. Here is what we ended up doing: 

Sub-Account Admins are given certain admin privileges' on the Sub-Accounts Level, however this cannot include the Act-as-User or the Student View permission. 

We then create an Account Level Administrative Role called "Act-As-User" Role and assign it to them. This is the only permission under this role. Then the Sub-account admins can find an instructor that is teaching for one of their courses, use the act-as-user feature to pretend to be them in the course, and then use the "student view" feature. 

This is a reallllll workaround and it would be great if sub-accounts admins could just have the Student View feature added to their permission possibilities.

When you give them this permission, is it allowing them to masquerade, or just see the student view in a course?  We want to grant accessing the student view to some subaccount admins, but we don't want them to be able to masquerade as anyone in the course.

 

Thanks for any insight!
