    What does Unpublished Site mean?

    By default, most sites in Sakai are Unpublished when they are first created.  This gives instructors or course designers a chance to go in and edit the content of the site before it is available to students and other users.  Some institutions publish all current courses automatically at the beginning of the academic term.  Institutions may also unpublish courses from prior or future terms.

    It is strongly recommended that you use the site navigation, and not the back and forward buttons in your web browser, to navigate within a site.

    What are project sites?

    Project sites are designed to facilitate collaboration. You can invite anyone you wish to join your project site.

    Project sites are typically worksites where a project director, team, or committee can make announcements, engage in online discussions, and share resources such as documents or links to other web sites. Project sites have all of the same tools available as course sites; however, they are typically not associated with credit course sections or academic terms.

    What are course sites?

    A course site is the official worksite for a particular academic course for an institution and can be linked to a database (such as a registrar's) to automatically populate its roster.

    Course sites usually contain a selection of tools and resources provided by the instructor so that students may access course materials, interact with other site participants, and submit work.

  • Updated on: May 09, 2019

    What is the Contact Us tool?

    The Contact Us tool allows users to quickly and easily reach the appropriate contact for system issues. The user has the opportunity to choose if the issue is content-related, if they need help with the system, if they are having a technical problem, or if they wish to make a feature request. Links specific to each of those areas are automatically configured for each site based on system settings.

    Note: This tool, like the Help tool, appears in all Sakai sites by default.
