Request a Course Site
There are two types of Course Sites used in Canvas
- Live Course Sites will be linked with an academic or non-credit roster
- Sandbox Course Sites will not have an attached roster
Live Course Sites
Live Course Sites are the official worksites for a particular academic course and are linked to the Rutgers Student Information Systems to automatically populate its roster. The supported systems are REGIS, BANNER, and ANCOR (non-credit professional development).
Sandbox Course Sites
Sandbox Course Sites (often referred to as a ‘templates’) are not connected to a roster. These sites can be used for practice, testing, or archiving content. The content in these Sandbox Course Sites can easily be transferred into a Live Course Site via the Course Import Tool.
Sandbox Course Sites will not have an attached roster.
