Welcome to Using Sakai!

The Using Sakai area is oriented towards the needs of teachers, instructors, researchers, collaborators, instructional technologists, user support and related members of the Sakai community. It encompasses a broad range of topics, including sharing best practices for teaching and collaborating; asking, answering and demoing how various tools and capabilities work; discussing end-user support materials (e.g., documentation, training, tutorials); connecting with users with similar interests and needs; etc.

There is also an email list for asking questions on and discussing issues related to using Sakai: sakai-user@collab.sakaiproject.org (join sakai-user list.) This is a low-volume list, with only a few messages a week (sakai-user list archive).

The tables to the right on this page provide a synopsis of information that is either popular or has been recently updated.
