Can students view the history of course pages?

Students cannot view the history of a course page unless you give them access in the page settings.

Page History Access

By default, Admins and Instructors are the only users who can edit pages in a course. Those who have permission to edit a page will always see the Settings icon and View Page History link.

Student View

By default, students cannot edit pages in course, so they will not see the Settings icon and View Page History link unless you change the page settings.
