You must have Creator access in your region in order to create a workspace – without this access, the ‘Create a Workspace’ setup will not be available when you click on your newly created ATLAS link.

You can request access by filling out the Region ‘Creator’ Access Request Form. Once you have Creator access, you can follow the instructions below to create a new workspace for your course in ATLAS.

NOTE: It is strongly recommended that you contact your Blended Learning Advisor or Educational Designer before proceeding.
