This page discusses the steps to creating a new Sakai site to support a future or current course.

Please note:

  • Most members of Brock faculty or staff are able to create sites on demand, though only instructors of courses are able to include student rosters
  • Information about creating course sites without including students is available at x
  • Sakai receives course and enrollment updates several times daily from Brock's central records. The most up-to-date course information is normally available from Brock's course Timetables
