  • The official Singh Sandbox training site is located at: https://umd.instructure.com/courses/1274047

  • The Singh Sandbox Maker Space uses ELMS / Canvas to host a series of short training modules used for safety and basic usage certification
  • ELMS / Canvas is University of Maryland's Learning Management System (LMS)
  • ELMS stands for Enterprise Learning Management System but apparently nobody uses that acronym.


  • Using the UMD campus LMS allows us to present training in a uniform fashion and ensures that we maintain accurate records about who has completed the training necessary to use a particular tool.
  • Training modules are short (10-20 minutes on average) modules intended to teach the most important safety information and basic usage information.
  • If you are unable to see all of the course modules, be sure you are enrolled. Check the below link to enroll.
  • All students must complete the Introduction module before getting accessing any of the other tool training modules.
