A Canvas development (DEV) site is a site assigned to a specific course or Instructor, to assist with practice and course development activities, in preparation for future course delivery.
DEV site characteristics
DEV sites contain all the same features as a Canvas course, but the they never contain students and never go live. The DEV sites act as a "play place" where instructors can experiment with features, or store course content for an upcoming term. Live Canvas sites can import content from a DEV site.
