Instructors decide if Observers have access to the course on the Observer Access page. An Observer can be assigned by the System Administrator. A person with an Observer role is assigned to observe a specific user on the Blackboard Learning System.
Follow the steps below to open the Observer Access page.
Step 1 Select Course Settings in Course Options on the Course Control Panel.
Step 2 Click Observer Access.
Select Yes in the Allow Observers: field to allow Observers to access the course. Select No and Observers will not be able to access the course.
Observers may be allowed to access information in Content Areas; they may not access Assessments or Assignments. If these items appear in a Content Area, the Observer will not be able to view them.
