Faculty Orientation, Training, & Documentation
Faculty training is our highest priority, and we aim to provide the opportunity for anyone who wants assistance to participate in workshops, to learn from self-service materials online, and to reach out with specific questions via phone and/or email. Based on faculty feedback, we plan to start offering training in early May and would like to emphasize that the earlier people come to us, the more time we will be able to devote to them.
Faculty Training Survey
trunk is based on based on a customized deployment of the Sakai Learning Management System. In this section, we have included a range of resources that will not only provide you with background information on Sakai but enable you to test out the new online learning environment.
