Sakai is a set of software tools designed to help instructors, researchers, and students collaborate. Hundreds of educational organizations around the world use Sakai as a learning management system.
Our Sakai installation is currently version 2.10, more commonly known as 10. A new release is planned for the 2016.
Although Sakai does not visually change between updates, there are many internal functionality and infrastructure improvements behind the scenes. The Sakai development community works collaboratively on security fixes, performance improvements, new features, and other fixes.
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.
Training and Drop-in sessions for help will be provided before the semester begins. Faculty support is always available by calling ITIT (x4848) or contact your department's Instructional Technology Subject Specialist http://www.wellesley.edu/lts/helppage/subjectspec for help over the phone or to schedule an office visit.
If you have any questions about course support, the use of Sakai and/or Google Apps for your courses, please contact the Instructional Technology Support Line at x4848.
