Canvas Sandboxes, a safe place to create and explore

EEE+ GrandCentral allows for instructors to create a Canvas Sandbox. These Sandboxes do not have any students associated to them. They can be used to play with Canvas features, experiment with ideas, prepare for a future course, and more.

Sandboxes can also be easily exported and then imported into a Canvas Course Space.
