Request your CourseSpace Shell

Access and set-up instructions

Remember that CourseSpaces shells must be requested each term for all credited courses.

  • If you wish to re-use an old course site, you must first request a new course shell for the semester following the directions below. You can then import the contents from an existing shell. Please contact the Computer Help Desk for assistance.
  • If you require a cross-listed course, first request course shells for each section following the directions below. Then contact the Computer Help Desk and request these sections be cross-listed. You will need to provide the CRNs for each section.

Before you start

  • Please note, if you are in the Faculties of Business or Human & Social Development, do not select your LMS using this process. Please contact your department for further information and assistance.
  • You must have a NetLink ID and password.
  • You must be designated as the instructor of the course in Banner. In order to verify this, Sign into UVic. Once logged in, navigate to MyPage, and look for your course(s) in your My Courses channel. If your course is not listed, confirm with your department that you are designated as the course instructor. You cannot complete the LMS selection process unless this has been completed.
  • Please be aware that course shell requests and student enrollment updates can take up to 48 hours to appear.

Note for administrative staff and co-op coordinators

  • If you are responsible for requesting course shells on behalf of instructors, please the Computer Help Desk. They will be able to set you up with a simple program that will allow you to request course shells for instructors in your department.
