Creating an eClass Sandbox Course

Article Last Updated July 2021

An eClass sandbox course is useful for any instructor or staff member who wants to explore the system, try out various activities, or do some practice course construction.  Note: You can only have one sandbox per account.

You can create an eClass sandbox course using eClass' automatic course request process.

To create a sandbox:

  1. Visit the eClass Course Request System to get started.

  2. Alternatively, to access the eClass Course Request System:
    1. Navigate to the U of A home page, click the magnifying glass icon at top right (magnifying glass icon) and click the eClass link under "Quick Links".

    2. Then, click on the Request your course in eClass button underneath the heading 'Instructors' in the left hand column.

  4. Next click on Request a Course.

  5. Then, click on the Sandbox course tile and click Next:

  6. Check the box to confirm 'I want to create my Sandbox' and click Finish to create the course request. You will receive an email with a link to the course once it is created.
