Sakai Support

Contact us for help with Sakai!

The Instructional Technology group supports Sakai and related instructional technologies for the faculty, staff and students in the school. We can help guide you through campus and school-supported technologies, and help determine the “why” and “when” of using technology for instruction. Get in touch with us using our Contact Us info, attend a workshop, or browse through our documentation or FAQs for an answer to your question.

We can advise and assist with Sakai and other tools, including VoiceThread, Blackboard Collaborate, Warpwire, Poll Everywhere, and more.
