How to Request a Sandbox Course

While you become accustomed to Canvas @ Yale, you can request a Sandbox course. A Canvas sandbox site is an unofficial course site for your use only and is designed for you to practice using the tools available within Canvas @ Yale.

Note: No student can be enrolled within a sandbox course, however sandbox courses can be copied into the actual course site once the official course is created.

Early Course Sandbox

  • A site you can request for spring and/or fall courses to begin preparing your site if your course is not yet in Canvas.

Personal Sandbox

  • A site you can use to experiment with Canvas tools and features.

In order to request your own sandbox course, please submit the Sandbox Request Form.
