Admin seeking suggestion: How can faculty create test Student account, but not create multiple accounts?
New Canvas Admin coming from Blackboard. In Blackboard, faculty had the ability to create a user_s account that was auto-added into the student role via a 3rd party Building Block. They could also manage their passwords.
In a perfect world, we'd like this exact capability
- manage their own password
- auto-enrolled into their course
- separate _s login
But I'm all ears for anything similar. We do not want the faculty to use the +People, as they could invite other faculty who do not yet have Canvas accounts and we need legitimate faculty to be authenticated through SAML. We also don't want them to +People for auditors. Preferably, they only need to create a single test student account for themselves.
Note: Student view is ok, but turns out faculty want more of a real student view to help with screenshots and even LTI testing.
