Getting Started

Sakai Users

How can you easily explore the Sakai software and community?

Step 1:
Try the Sakai CLE

One of the great advantages of community source software is the opportunity to easily gain hands-on experience with it. Several Sakai Commercial Affiliates host Sakai sandboxes that allow you to Try Sakai.

Step 2:
Join the Announcements Mailing List

A few times every month there is an announcement about Sakai that is sent to this distribution list. You will hear when there are new releases, community events, and important initiatives. Also, you will receive the monthly community newsletter that includes updates from across the community. Join the list here.

Step 3:
Attend a Monthly Teaching & Learning (T&L) Group Meeting

The T&L Group meets monthly to share progress on initiatives that are led by faculty members and instructional leaders. You may listen in silently, but if you introduce yourself on the call you will receive a warm welcome.More about the T&L

Step 4:
Attend a Community Event

Every year the community comes together at the Sakai conference to plan, work and share. This provides an opportunity to meet community members who can answer your questions and share ideas. Beyond the annual meeting, the community holds regular regional meetings around the world. View upcoming events.

Step 5:
Contact a Community Member

If not, you may contact the Foundation and we will help match you up with a current Sakai member who can share experiences with you. Learn more about the community.
