Creating a Sakai Course Site
Create your course site today!
The 2-minute video below will walk you through creating a course site:
You can also follow the directions below:
Log in to Sakai (http://sakai.duke.edu). Go to My Workspace and click Worksite Setup. At the top of the frame, click New.
On the next page, click the radio button next to course site, then select the Academic term from the drop-down list. If you’re creating a course site for a school that uses a template (Nursing, Fuqua, Law or Divinity), select it from the Site Template options – otherwise, all Duke course sites should use Duke Default Course Template which is preselected. Click Select Course.
If you are listed as the instructor in the registration system, you will be able to put checks by the desired course roster(s). If you are a staff member setting up a course for an instructor, you will need to select “subject”, “course”, and “section” and use the drop-down menus to choose the subject, course number and section.
Caution: If you select multiple courses or sections, they will be combined into one Sakai course site. To create separate course sites for each of your courses, repeat this set-up for each individual course. If you want to combine several enrollments (ex: include several lab enrollments in a lecture course) you can select all courses you want to combine and click Done.
Please note: If you select all rosters for a cross-listed site, it will choose one roster as the name of the course. You can not edit the name later. If you would like to select one course as the title, choose only that roster now. Add the additional cross-listed rosters later from within the site.
