can i switch my course content to "observer" mode, much like i can switch to "student view"? i'd like to see what my observer can access.
Elliot Berger Welcome to the Canvas Community!
That functionality does not exist in Canvas. However, your school's Canvas Admin can tell you exactly what observers can see in a Canvas classroom. Of course, I think I will do that for you right now, but keep in mind that your Canvas Admin can change these permissions - Actually, you can find the default permissions at What user roles and permissions are available in Canvas? and at Canvas Account Permissions PDF
I hope this is helpful.
