Screening Guidance for Non-Course, Instructional Canvas Site

Canvas sites are generally reserved for named, identified courses created as part of the official course schedule. However, under some circumstances, the creation of a Canvas site might be created for instructional purposes beyond scheduled courses with CRNs. Requests for such sites are screened by a task group of the LMS Governance Committee and will be evaluated using the following criteria.

  • Sites should be used for instructional purposes, for example, serve a cohort of students who may not be concurrently registered for a course in common but who are sharing an academic experience (e.g., a cumulative project such as a graduate or senior project, a field-based or clinical experience not associated with a CRN, modules that are required for training in the major, such as safety training, etc., that may not be associated with a specific CRN but that are required and instructional)
  • Sites should be more than a repository of documents/resources and rely on the collaborative and learning tools of an LMS (e.g., discussion forums, tests/quizzes, rubrics, and assignment/project feedback).

In order to request the creation of a Canvas site for instructional purposes, requestors should complete the Request a New Canvas Course form. Please provide as much detail as possible including the name of the course, who the owner/instructor will be, the purpose of the course, and a detailed description outlining the needs and impact.
