If the system Administrator has activated the new UI, the Instructor can enable the new UI for his/her user account (1).
To enable the new UI as the Administrator, review the steps in this guide.
While the new UI is active, the sidebar will be available on the left on all pages that the Instructor can visit and can be retracted or expanded. To view the sidebar as a different type of user, check here: Administrator and Learner.
