Canvas: request a site

Posted at 10:48 a.m. Dec. 11, 2017, by in Canvas

Update (2/15/18) for Su18 course sites and beyond! Now Canvas sites can be automatically created at the department level, based on entries to Regis Course Scheduling System.

If your department is not submitting these data, you can continue to request sites individually:

  • to request a new site, send email to, including:
    • for a practice site, or one unconnected to a student roster, just include your name, NetID, and the new site’s name (e.g., “Please create a ‘sandbox’ site called “Lee’s Practice Site”)
    • for a course site, include your name, NetID, the semester, the full course and index number (e.g., “Please create a live site for F18, 57:705:101:02, index 12345”)
  • to request a course be migrated from a previous Rutgers system (e.g., eCollege or Sakai or Blackboard), use the Canvas Course Migration form from TLT in NB. For Camden faculty, you may wish to contact your local Instructional Design & Technology group first… often we can help! As always, email or call (856) 225-6090.
