FIU Online offers its fully online professors access to Sandbox Courses that allow you to explore and test our Blackboard Learn environment. A Sandbox Course contains all the basic features and functionality of a fully online course shell, including course content, discussion board, messages, assessments, assignment dropbox, grade center, etc.
In your Sandbox Course, you will have editing/faculty rights that allow you to practice and utilize all the tools available in Blackboard Learn. This course is a private space where you can test items you wouldn't be able to do in a live course. As you are the only one enrolled in the course, there is no need to worry about managing your students.

A Sandbox course is to be used for testing purposes only, and not for live course shell creation.
