Welcome to Sakai 10

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Loyola’s Learning Management System (LMS), Sakai, was recently upgraded on May 9th to version 10, moving from version 9.  This new release provides many new enhancements and fixes to the existing system.  Faculty and students are not required to change anything as we move to this new release and will find some benefits in some of the new features including:

  • New Peer Grading and Group Assignments Capabilities in the Assignment Tool
  • New Question Types in the Quiz Tool
  • New Capability to Allow Students to Create Both Individual and Group Content
  • New Syllabus Tool

To learn more about these changes, “What’s New in Sakai 10” sessions will be offered for faculty throughout the summer and early fall.  The sessions will be offered in multiple formats and at multiple locations.  Visit the Technology Training page and click on “Register Now” for the latest training schedule. Please also visit the tutorial pages for Faculty or Students for the latest documentation.
