Welcome to Sakai!

Sakai (sometimes called 'Isaak-Sakai' or 'Isaak') is Brock University's online system for managing your course work. Sakai can be used to track your courses, download course materials, submit your course work, communicate with your instructors, or sometimes to connect to other places across the web.

FAQs about getting started as a student

How can I find Sakai?

Sakai is available directly at https://lms.brocku.ca/portal.

It can also be located from most Brock University webpages:

  1. visit any brocku.ca webpage
  2. open Menu
  3. click Isaak/Sakai

How can I log into Sakai?

After visiting https://lms.brocku.ca/portal/, click Brock Login.

How can I find my courses?

Many of your courses will appear within your navigation near the top of any page in Sakai. Clicking upon a course title will allow you visit that course's space in Sakai.

A full list of your courses in Sakai from the current and previous terms is available to you from the Sites area. After opening Sites, click upon a course to enter its Sakai site.

One of my courses is not available in Sakai. Is something wrong?

Probably not!
  • If the class has just begun, give it a few days. Many course instructors choose to open their Sakai sites to students on or near the first day of classes.
  • If you've just registered for a course, it can sometimes take up to one day for the course's Sakai site to appear for you.
  • Steps in How can I find my courses? above might help you locate a missing course.

How can I change my favourited courses?

Favourited or pinned courses will always be shown to you in your top navigation from any Sakai page and will possess a yellow Star icon.jpg next to their title. Updating your favourited courses once in a while or at the start of new terms can be handy, as it keeps your Sakai experience fresh.

To update your favourited courses, try these steps:

  1. Open the Sites menu
  2. Find a course that is not yet favourited
  3. Click upon the star icon
  4. The course will now appear in your top navigation on any page in Sakai
