Canvas (Terminology) - "Master Course" change to "Sandbox Course"

Posted: 12:16:27, Friday, Feb 5, 2021   Expiration: 12:16:27, Friday, Feb 12, 2021  

The University of Wisconsin System Digital Learning Environment (DLE) Advisory Council has approved a Change Request to change the term "Master Course" to "Sandbox Course." This change will be reflected in the DLE's Canvas Subaccount names, KnowledgeBase articles, and custom Master Course Creation Tool.

The term "Sandbox" correctly identifies the function of these courses while avoiding the negative connections to the word Master.

The change has been prioritized and added to the DLE service management roadmap with target completion in Summer 2021.
