Can I set up a practice course?

Jump to solution

Now that I have taken the Canvas training, I'd like to practice and explore on my own.  My district will set up the courses I will be teaching, but I'd rather practice on something that will not actually be used.  Is there a way to just practice using Canvas without using the official district courses?#practice shell

Hi frankm@darden.virginia.edu Welcome  to the Canvas Community!

Typically, a school or district will set you up with a practices, or give teachers permission to create their own shells. I would suggest talking to your District's Canvas Admin/Support Department.

If teachers have permission to create their own course shells, this guide will help How do I use the Dashboard as an instructor? 

An alternative would be to create a Free-for-Teachers account, and create a shell that way. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-16623-free-for-teacher-account-faq?sr=search&searchId=e019e... 

Good luck,
