Canvas, Request a course as a Template

This details the process for requesting a Canvas course as a Template within the Canvas@Illinois environment

A course template within Canvas can be useful to provide a consistent experience for students, and include base content for all new courses in an account. For additional information regarding course templates, please view this page, including the demonstration video:  Courses: Course Templates (2021-05-15 Release) - Instructure Community ( 

To request a course be set as an account template:

  • Logon to the Space Request App to request a new course space
  • Complete the request and specify to add "Special Instructions" at the end
  • in the Special Instructions field that opens add "Canvas Template" (or some iteration containing those two words)
  • Submit the request

Once the course space is built a Canvas admin will enable the course as a template and it will be available to manipulate for your account.
