Sakai

Sakai is a set of software tools designed to help instructors, researchers, and students collaborate.  Over 350 educational organizations use Sakai as a learning management system.

 

Sakai is being updated to version 2.10 for the Spring 2015 semester. 

Although Sakai will not visually change, there are many internal infrastructure improvements, about 50 security fixes, performance improvements, a number of new features, and close to 2,000 fixes! in this update.

Sakai 2.10 improvements:

  • Drag-and-drop functionality in the Resources tool (depending on browser)
  • A new "Link" icon in every tool. Allows direct linking to any tool page in your Sakai course, including Forum posts, specific tests or quizzes, and more.  
  • Many helpful new features in Tests & Quizzes and Lessons.
