Course Shell Design

Course Shell Design

How do I get a course shell to design?

Often, faculty will need to begin developing course content before the upcoming semester’s course shells are available in Blackboard. To meet this need, ATLIS has development shells available upon request. These function as a place to design and develop content, which can be copied over into a live shell once it becomes available.

To request a development shell, please submit a Help Desk request at 
Be sure to include the following information:

  • Faculty member's name and email address
  • Course Name and Prefix (e.g. ED 101 Intro to Education)
  • Specify that you are requesting a Development Shell
