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.

Cal Poly Canvas Sandbox Request Form

The CTLT can provide access to the Cal Poly Canvas Sandbox or you can use the free space. You can work on your course redesign now and over the Summer 2019. If you have a current Cal Poly account ( and would like a Cal Poly Canvas Sandbox account and course shell, please fill out the form. We will add you to the self-pace online course for migrating Moodle into Canvas. The Sandbox content can be uploaded into the Canvas Commons (private for you only) or saved to be placed into our production Canvas system in Winter 2020. 

NOTE: This sandbox space will not have students, student participation or student grades. This is only a temporary space provided by Canvas to allow us to test out PolyLearn-Moodle migration and learn the tools. It is a great opportunity for us to get some time-on-task before the production system is available in 2020. This space is only supported by the LMSSupportTeam. Please email or place comments and questions within the self-paced online course. 

Your shell will be generated and emailed (via calpoly.canvas) to you within 48 hours (M-F 8am - 5pm - excluding holidays).
