How do I request a continuing/non-registrar course shell?

At McMaster, we offer two types of course request. Typically if teaching an undergraduate or graduate course that is found in Mosaic, you would request a registrar course shell.

However, we also offer the option of requesting sandbox/communication shells. This specific request form can be found at the Educational Technologies Support helpdesk.
