We are holding two workshops next week to provide you with any Sakai assistance you might need to get started with the semester. The Sakai 10 Upgrade back in May brought several enhancements to the system, so we encourage you to attend a workshop to familiarize yourself with the new features.
Sakai Workshops: Aug 17 & 18
Intro to Teaching in Sakai [Register]
Monday, August 17
Are you a new instructor and want to teach in Sakai? Do you need a refresher on setting up your course site? Join us for a *crash course* on teaching in Sakai! We’ll help you–
- Create your course site
- Upload and organize your course content
- Figure out the best way to communicate with your students
- Get an overview of the Gradebook
We recommend having your departmental course scheduler list you as the instructor of course in ConnectCarolina before attending this workshop. Please note that TAs in ConnectCarolina cannot create Sakai course sites.
