Sakai is an educational software platform where your students can submit assignments, you can send class-wide emails, have discussion boards, post readings and videos and keep an online grade book. Our online classes use this interface for everything they do: all assignments and communications go through Sakai. However, if you are teaching an in-person class, it’s up to you whether you want to physically collect assignments during class time, or digitally collect them through the class site.
To access Sakai, visit sakai.unc.edu/welcome and log in with your ONYEN and password. Click the Sites waffle in the upper righthand corner; you should see your class number listed. Once you are in your class site, you can begin posting content for your students.
The Sakai Welcome page has links to tutorials and FAQs that can also be very helpful.
If your class site is listed, and you still are not able to access the features you’re looking for, contact ITS at (919) 962-HELP, or submit an online ticket at help.unc.edu.
