  4. At the next page, under the section, "Activate Canvas for your Offering," click on the arrow next to "Canvas" to view and choose the options to clone an existing Canvas site or create a site with a template or set to generate as a unstructured Canvas shell.


After you've self-initiated Canvas, the site (or sites) should become available within one to two hours and can be accessed via direct link and "Canvas Home" at your my.evergreen page.

If you select WordPress, (sites.evergreen.edu) - sites are manually-created by curricular support staff and you will be contacted when the site is available.
