Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.

Additional Test Course Request

Each instructor is provided one Sandbox/Test shell. The course is located in the "Sandbox" sub-account. This is a great location for you to test and learn Canvas. 

A Sandbox shell is a great space to work on your semester course redesign. If you feel like you need additional Sandbox shells (not for credit/graded courses), then you can request another via this form. 

If you need students to participate in a course shell, please request a Miscellaneous shell. Sandbox shells are not for students, but for development, learning the tools, or testing out new features.

If you are looking for a Canvas course shell for non-Cal Poly Students, use the free space.

Requests can take up to 48 hours (M-F: 8-5) before you will receive an email confirmation.

Each faculty is assigned one Sandbox shell by default. If you would like another for development needs, please indicate below. You also have course shells for the next quarter and backups to work on content too.
