Next up in our Sakai 11 Upgrade Blog Series — updates to the Lessons tool!
After we upgrade, instructors will be able to add a checklist to their Lesson pages for students to self-report their progress in Lessons. These checklists will help students stay on task and instructors check in on their students’ progress.
Adding a checklist is easy! In your Lessons page:
- Select Add Content > Add Checklist
- Enter Checklist Title
- Click Add New Checklist Item and enter item name. Repeat for additional items
You can hide the checklist name from students, add a description, change the checklist appearance, and only make it available to specific Groups if you would like. This is what the checklist would look like to students:
Instructions can click on the Checklist Progress icon:
NOTE: Keep in mind the progress is self-reported by students.
Organize Sections with Borders, Columns, & Color
Lesson pages can now be divided up into separate sections with borders, columns, and different colors! Instead of having all of your content run together on one Lesson page or dividing up your content into separate Lesson subpages, instructors will have the option to break up their content on Lesson pages into different sections and better organize the course material.

We are 2 weeks away from the Sakai 11 Upgrade! Please note we must take Sakai offline on December 20 to apply the upgrade. Thank you!
