Sakai@UNC (Learning Management System)
Sakai@UNC (http://sakai.unc.edu) provides a flexible and feature-rich environment for teaching, learning, research and other collaboration. Supported uses include UNC-Chapel Hill courses and academic and administrative projects.
Students, faculty, staff, and university affiliates.
Course sites: Instructors of record for courses listed in ConnectCarolina have the ability to create Sakai course sites. Students have access to a course site when two conditions have been met: they have been registered for a course for at least 24 hours, and the instructor of the course has published the site. http://sakaitutorials.unc.edu/?Create_Your_Course_Site
Project sites: Faculty and staff may request the creation of project sites for administrative and academic activities. Participants in project sites have access to those sites only after the site owner has added them to the site as a participant and published the site. http://sakaitutorials.unc.edu/index.php?||Project_Sites
