Select Moodle version:

Blocks: DemoStudent block

The DemoStudent block gives instructors a way to enroll a "demostudent" in their course, then switch back and forth between their instructor view and the student view.

Students have a different view of your course than instructors do. This block provides a way to test the student experience beyond the existing Switch role to... link in the Settings block.  Instructors in a course can use the DemoStudent block to create a personal "demostudent" account, and then switch between the demostudent user and their instructor role.  The demostudent user can complete assignments and quizzes with persistent data to verify grading, and can be used to test restricted access using groups or groupings.

    Thank you for sharing this!
    Feel free to add some description from your documentation page here as it will help a lot imo. Also please fix up the (accidental-ish) truncated short description.

    Also please have a read through http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_validation#Recommended_URLs before we publish this smile

    I've added descriptions and pushed the code to github. We can switch to Moodle Tracker for issues once a new project gets created there.
