Creating New Sandpit Spaces

As a VU staff member, you will automatically have access to your personal Sandpit which is an online area for you to explore, learn and create in VU Collaborate. You can create additional Sandpits (up to 5), to facilitate designing content for multiple units or subjects, by following the steps below.

Note: Sandpits are not used for delivery with students; all content you intend to use for delivery will need to be copied to a live space before the beginning of the teaching period.

Step One: Login to VUC Manager

Log into MYVU portal[https://myvuportal.vu.edu.au] and in the Application access section, click the VU Collaborate Manager.

Step Two: Creating a Sandpit Space


In the Home screen for VU Collaborate Manager you can search for spaces that have already been created to view, update and delete.

On the right side of the screen is the section for managing your Sandpits. Click on the New Sandpit button.


A confirmation message will be displayed and a new sandpit space will be added to the bottom of the list of current sandpits.

Clicking on the sanpit1 redX X icon to the right of a sandpit will delete it.

You can have a maximum of 5 sandpits. If you already have 5 sandpits, you need to delete one in order to create a new one.


Next time you log into VU Collaborate, the new sandpit will be available from the Select a space dropdown menu or the My Spaces homepage.
