Requests for Accounts, Classrooms and Training

eLearning supports the following systems. Some of these systems require accounts, have training activities, or use a quarterly process to set up their use with active classes. Please use the links in the list below to access the assorted request forms for each need.


Merge Requests

Due to legal and ethical concerns pertaining to student safety and privacy, at this time we are no longer merging multiple sections of a course in Canvas. However, if the sections you had hoped to merge satisfy the criteria below, please email José Villeda with a copy to Matthew Campbell indicating the sections you would like to merge and detailing how the sections meet the criteria.

Requests must meet all of the following criteria to permit a merger of multiple sections in a single Canvas shell:

  1. All sections have a grounded component (cannot be fully-online course), AND
  2. All sections meet at the same time, on the same days, and in the same room for the grounded component, AND
  3. All students across all sections meet together during the grounded component.

Ultimately, for some portion of the course, all students need to meet at the same time, on the same days, and in the same room.

Examples – Can it be merged?

  • My online sections have all the same content. Can they be merged?
    No, as it does not meet any criteria above.
  • I have multiple sections of a hybrid. The grounded component is the lab. All labs are in the same room, but students attend a lab when their section is scheduled. Can it be merged?
    No, as criteria #3 has not been met.
  • I have a double lecture. Students meet at different times for lab, but all attend the same lecture in the same room every MWF at noon. Can it be merged?
    Yes! All criteria are met.
  • I have a “clustered” course. Students register for different sections that align with their level, but they all meet in a single lab together every TR at 10 a.m. Can it be merged?
    Yes! All criteria are met.

We are working on developing systems and a process that will permit more flexibility in merging sections. However, until then, if you have additional questions, please contact Matthew Campbell.
