Courses Upgrade August 3, 2021
On Tuesday, August 3, 2021, Technology and Learning upgraded Courses to the latest version, Sakai 21. The upgrade comes with several enhancements and new features for the Assignments, Tests & Quizzes, Gradebook, Site Info, and other tools.
IMPORTANT: Class site content will stay intact! Ongoing classes and new classes will not skip a beat as all the content for each class will be retained.
You can watch a Town Hall session held by the Technology and Learning Team from June 4 where we go over the great new benefits of the upgrade.
This update includes improved performance and feature enhancements including:
- An optional Sakai grader service in assignments, which allows instructors to view attached submissions in-line.
- A new "Date Manager" service, which allows instructors to edit all open dates and due dates for various tools in one place.
- A way to message students right from the Gradebook based upon performance on a particular activity.
- The Forums tool was renamed to "Discussions."
- Other Enhancements to Tests & Quizzes, Gradebook, and Lessons.
