Don’t forget that you have specify which course sections you want to use in Sakai each semester. By default, Sakai course sections are not “turned on”.
- Log into Sakai
- In My WorkSpace click Worksite Setup > New.
- Chose Course site and select the appropriate academic term.
Course sites are for official academic courses. Project sites are for other uses.
You will see courses for which you are the instructor of record with the Registrar’s office. If you don’t see your sections listed under Course Sites, then STOP! Contact your departmental administrative assistant to make sure they have made you the instructor of record for your courses with the Registrar’s Office.
- Follow the prompts from there to complete the course setup. When you get to the end you will be given the choice to publish or leave in draft.
You must Publish the course before students can access it. Only people with the Instructor role (or Maintain if you are creating a Project site) can access a Draft course.
