Create a Canvas Sandbox Prep Course

Tags course canvas


It is helpful to have a sandbox course where you can collaborate with other instructors, try new course designs, etc. 

Instructions to Create a Practice Course 

  1. From the Canvas global navigation men, select Dashboard.
  2. From the sidebar, select Start a New Course
    Canvas dashboard create course
  3. From the Start a New Course window, enter details for your course.
    You can use whatever name you want. Leave the content copyrighted for now.
    Start a new course dialog window with sample course name
  4. Select Create Course. 
    By default, the practice course defaults to Modules. We will change that later on when we apply the Chico State template. 
    New Course with Modules as default

By default, new courses do not have any template applied. Here are some possible next steps.

If you have questions, contact the Technology & Learning Program. We have drop-in help available on Zoom.
