Canvas Exploration Sites (“Sandboxes”)
Instructors who have taught in the last year already have Canvas site for exploration and experiment that is not tied to a particular course. (This is known as a “sandbox.”) To access your sandbox, log in to https://www.canvas.ucsb.edu/. If you do not have a sandbox and would like one please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
