Description from store 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/* 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.

  • (2020-08-30) Brian Ash: 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!
