Create a new project site

From EdTech Help

Project sites will not offer the creator with an option to include sections of students (as with Course sites), but will otherwise offer all features within Sakai. Project sites are quite useful for a number of undertakings:

  • Testing new assignment or course design ideas
  • Developing course templates
  • Collaborating among colleagues on teaching & learning or research work that's not related to specific courses

All Brock faculty and staff members are able to create project sites within Sakai.
