Sakai is a Learning Management System for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of courses. Sakai helps the instructor facilitate collaboration among students, deliver course materials, administer tests and other assignments, track student progress, and manage record-keeping.

Sakai also includes dedicated project work sites which are widely used by staff, student groups, faculty committees, thesis committees, and others tasked with important collaborative projects beyond the classroom.

All current IC students, staff and faculty, including retirees, have access to Sakai.

In this category you will find common questions that the IC Community may have regarding Sakai, or documentation related to Ithaca College-specific Sakai implementations. For an extended knowledge base catalog, please review the Sakai 12 Community Documentation ( ).
