    Canvas can natively import iLearn's .mbz backup files. If there's a course you are trying to keep long term that you are not going to teach in a while or don't know when you're going to teach it next, it's probably going to be better to keep the actual .mbz backup file either on your computer or uploaded to your Box account rather than creating a shell in Canvas just to keep the course in and dormant.

    If you're actively working on a course for an upcoming semester, you can request a sandbox by emailing
