Introduction to Sakai
This intro session is a comprehensive introduction to the Sakai collaborative learning environment for instructional, research, and administrative uses. Participants will learn how to create and manage a site, add site participants, and use some of the more common Sakai tools. The sessions last for two hours, starting with a presentation, which leads into open Q&A and lab time. The session is best suited for those who have not yet created a Sakai site.
Using Gradebook Within Sakai
This workshop is for users that are comfortable using Sakai, but would like specific instruction on how to use the Gradebook tool within Sakai. Participants will learn how to setup their Gradebook either through categories or weighted categories, enter grades, view reports, and submit grades to the registrar. The workshop will last for one hour, and is hands on.
Using Lessons Within Sakai
This workshop will focus on the Lessons tool within Sakai. Lessons features intuitive use of multiple Sakai tools like Assignments, Resources, Web Content and other tools to organize material. Lessons has the ability to force students to meet requirements prior to moving on to the next section and multimedia will play directly on the page; students do not need to download them. Since Lessons utilizes all of the other tools within Sakai; it is not recommended for novel users. This will be a hands on session and last one hour.
For all training sessions, participants must have their Rutgers NetID set up prior to attending. To set up a NetID, visit netid.rutgers.edu.
