Convert Your My Space
Your My Space course is a private sandbox course where you are the only one enrolled. This space was designed to allow you to practice using the tools and features in myLesley.
All My Space courses will be converted to Ultra Course View in January 2024, however you may convert your My Space at any time.
If your My Space was created before August 8, 2023, please email email@example.com to request your My Space be set to Instructor Choice.
If your My Space was created after August 8, 2023, your course is already set to Instructor Choice.
