GauchoSpace has been designed to be as self-serve and automated as possible. Instructors can create course sites for an upcoming quarter as soon as GauchoSpace is able to load and test the data from the registrar. This is generally on the first day of Pass 2 enrollment for that quarter (or by the beginning of May for Summer Sessions).
Note: If you are new to using GauchoSpace as an Instructor, or are a returning instructor who has not used GauchoSpace for several quarters, it may be helpful to enroll yourself in our GauchoSpace Online Orientation site.
We understand that some faculty want or need to work on preparing for their course before these pass 2 dates. In those cases, we can create a "limited" sandbox site where you can prepare the site (but not add any other users). To request a sandbox site, please use the Course Request Manager. After the pass 2 date has been reached and you have created your official course site, you can then import materials from your sandbox site.
