Collaborate with Sakai Project Sites

Dagbedji Fagnisse, OIT Student Trainer, teaching a Sakai Project Sites seminar

Need an online environment to organize, collaborate & communicate with a group? Duke students, instructors and departments can create a project site in Sakai, Duke’s learning management system. OIT Training is offering several free “Sakai Project Sites: An Introduction” seminars as part of the spring 2012 schedule to walk you through the process of setting up your project site and an overview of the tools you’ll need to get started. To view the schedule and to register, go to:  http://training.oit.duke.edu/reg/

Faculty and support staff who are working on academic courses and need overview sessions and tool specific training such as Gradebook, Assignments and Discussion Boards should visit http://cit.duke.edu/events/sakai/ for workshop and registration information.
