Basic Sakai Training Course

Online Education offers a self-paced basic Sakai training course for all faculty. The course is designed to ensure that you have the basic Sakai competencies to begin teaching in online and blended formats. The course teaches you, via text and accompanying step-by-step video tutorials, how to set up a site, use 6 specific tools appropriately and effectively, and create a screencast of your site navigation using Camtasia Relay or another screencasting tool.  The course generally takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes, depending upon your familiarity with Sakai. If you already know the tools, you will be able to move quickly through it.  If not, it will take a bit longer to complete. Once you successfully complete the course, you will receive a certificate of completion.

This training course is now a prerequisite for our Online Pedagogy program, and one part of a 2-part certification to designate you as an exemplary online teacher.

You should be added to the site within 24 hours of completing the form. If you have not been added within 48 hours please email us and we will add you as soon as possible.
