Support for Using the New Sakai Site Templates

Posted by: Date: July 10, 2018

By Dana Bodewes, Instructional Designer

During summer 2018, three templates options — Standard, Minimal, and Legacy templates — were added to the Sakai Request Course form. Sakai templates contain general tools and pages that must be updated by the instructor before publishing the site to students. We recommend instructors request their new Sakai sites and prepare them for publishing as early as possible. Several support options have been developed to aid instructors in using the new templates.

Online guide for setting up a new Sakai site

New Sakai sites now contain a hidden link to a Site Setup Tutorial for instructors. The online tutorial offers a step-by-step overview of the process for preparing new course sites.
