CN Channel admins sometimes may need to log into a Channel member's account to view content or manage settings. The "Log in as" feature in CN Channel supports such a need.
Please note: CN Channel admins can only log into accounts that belong to their own Channel. They cannot log into a public user's account or an account of another institution.
There are a couple of places in CN Channel to log in as another account.
1. The first place is from User Management>>User Table. Find the specific user's entry and click the "Log in as" icon on the right.
2. Another place is from Course Management>>Course Table. Find the specific course, click the View/Manage Course Members icon (the little person icon),
Then, the course roster will pop up. Find the specific user's entry and click the gear icon on the right. Now, choose "Log in course as this member".
Once you have logged into another account, you see an interface like this:
The blue bar on the top indicates that you have logged in as another user. When you are ready to leave the account, click the "Logout" link in the upper-right corner. You will be automatically logged back into your own CN account.
