NCPD - CSIS - LMS Spaces - How to Create and Disassociate

Instructions on how to create an LMS course site in CSIS.

Noncredit Professional Development courses or Lifelong Learning (L3) courses cannot be set up directly in Canvas, so an LMS course site must be set up in CSIS. These instructions outline how to do this. For additional reference, see How to Use the LMS Spaces Tab. This document also includes directions for disassociating a LMS Space from a course instance.

Create a LMS Space

1. Log in to CSIS and navigate to the instance of a course. See [Link for document 102218 is unavailable at this time] for details.

2. Go to LMS Spaces, near the top of the left navigation bar in the instance level of a course.
