Requesting your Canvas sites

The Canvas course request form is live, and you can now request course sites for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.

To start, go to the form at https://dla.library.upenn.edu/siterequest/ and log in with your PennKey and password.

Your home page will display any sites you have requested as well as your existing course sites. To request a new course, click on the course number under courses to start your request.

CourseList

On the next screen, you can specify whether you would like to access content from a Blackboard course site and be able to add it to your Canvas site. You also can change the course title as it displays in Canvas, request electronic reserve service, and provide additional information at this time. Click on Add to Queue at the bottom of the screen to continue.

At this point, you can choose Submit Request to be done with the process or click back to the Main page to add another site.
