Reliability of Log-In-As
Due to a security vulnerability identified in April 2019, the Log in as functionality no longer matches the complete user view.
The security patch hides specific tools / functionality from the log-in-as view, though they continue working perfectly fine for students/staff in their normal view. This includes:
- Services inserted into a Moodle course via embed code (also known as iframe)
- Example of services that support embed codes include theBox, H5P, Youtube and Smartsparrow
- Stack Quiz Questions
- GeSHi Filter
Settings, Navigation and Dashboard
Instructors logging in as a student will not have access to the student's other courses and some private pages/blocks:
To view a student's gradebook, instructors can click the user name on the top right and select 'Grades'. The course name can be selected within the grades page to the course grades.
