How to Request a Sandbox Course

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

There are two types of Sandbox Courses:

Course Sandbox

  • This is a sandbox that you can request if spring or fall courses are not quite ready within Canvas and you would like to begin preparing your course.
  • Note: No students will be enrolled within this course, but this course can be copied into the actual coursesite once the official course is created.

Personal Sandbox

  • A site you can use to experiment with Canvas tools and features.
  • Note: No students should be enrolled within this course as it is an unofficial course.

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