How to Request a Template

Templates are useful tools for practice, testing and archiving content in Canvas.  For information creating live course shells please see how instructors get their course on Canvas.

Content created in a template can easily be imported into a live course shell or another template using the Course Import Tool.

To request a template in Canvas send an email to with the following information:
  • The desired name for your Template.  If a name is not provided the template will be created as "Template Requester's Name"
  • Your name
  • Your Rutgers Net ID (Please do not include your password).
  • The department or unit you are associated with.
  • Any additional users you would like to have added including their Rutgers University email or their Net ID.
Additional users can be added at any time after the template has been created.
