Remote Teaching and Learning

Explore the Sakai Toolkit

Sakai (Ithaca College's learning management system) is recommended as the primary method for delivery of course materials and remote instruction. 

Sakai provides access to a number of tools we can use for communicating, teaching, and assessing online. Using Sakai we can...

  • Have access to the student roster and emails
  • Facilitate announcements and communication
  • Deliver content including files, links, and media 
  • Give assignments, collect and grade student work 
  • Give and grade quizzes  
  • Hold online discussion forums and chat 
  • Encourage student reflection through blogging 
  • Sequence the course content and activities into modules or lessons 
  • Securely connect to 3rd party tools such as Voicethread, Zoom, Leganto, and Kaltura 
  • Be supported by TLT, SAS and Library Staff
