How do I activate a Duke Guest account?

If you are invited to take part in a Duke Sakai course as a guest, you will receive an email from Duke OIT inviting you to set up your guest account.

Click on the link in the email and choose the icon of the account where you received your email invitation.

A page to enter your name will then launch. Once you fill in your name and hit the Submit button you will get confirmation that your account is now active. You do not need to return the invitation email again.

You should now log in at Be sure to use the OneLink login option.

You will then need to click on the email provider icon again to enter Duke’s Sakai system. You should now be active in Sakai.
