Masquerade/view as your child

As a parent, you can either masquerade/view as your child. Once you masquerade as your child, you will virtually get logged in like them. You will be able to view what they view and perform any actions that they can perform. In case view access is configured for the parent role on the site, then as a parent, you can only view the actions performed by your child and not perform the actions on their behalf. To know more about the important actions that your child can perform, click here.

This article will guide you on:

Masquerading as your child

1. On your homepage, click on your child's profile. You will be taken to their profile page.

2. Click the ellipsis at the bottom-right corner of their cover image.

3. Select Masquerade as this user.

4. You will now be taken to your child's homepage and you will be able to access and create any resources that he / she has permission to. An information banner will be placed at the top of the homepage informing you that you are masquerading as your child. Click Stop masquerading to go back to being you :)

Any content that you create or any resource that you access as your child will be logged in his / her activity stream. Although, instructors would not know that you have done that activity instead of your child, but the site administrator will know.

Viewing as your child

1. On your homepage, click on your child's profile. You will be taken to their profile page.

2. Click the ellipsis at the bottom-right corner of their cover image.

3. Select View as this user.

4. You will now be taken to your child's homepage and you will be able to access any resources that he / she has permission to. An information banner will be placed at the top of the homepage informing you that you are viewing as your child. Click Switch back to go back to being you!

You cannot create any content while viewing as your child. Lessons read by you, as a parent, will not reflect as lesson read by the child and you cannot submit any quizzes/assignments on behalf of your child. For performing such actions, the site should be configured for masquerading permissions.
