Early Upgrade to Sakai

Contributed by Jenna Linskens on 08/05/19 

As announced in Intercom to the Ithaca Community on 8/1/19 we were expecting to upgrade to Sakai 12 on August 12. Due to factors beyond our control the vendor upgraded our system today, August 5. Throughout the day users may experience a prolonged outage. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  

We are very excited about the new features to Sakai 12 and look forward to working with the IC community to engage in the many features available which include: 

  • Improved look and feel with improved navigation 
  • Improved responsive design and better performance on mobile devices 
  • Course templates  
  • Gradebook performance enhancements 
  • Updates to Assignments tool 
  • A new "Commons" tool for social connections within courses 
  • Improved modern interface for the Chat tool 
  • Updates to the Lessons tool 
  • Updates to Test and Quizzes 
  • Accessibility improvements 

Users are invited to participate in upcoming training sessions and one-on-one consultations hosted by the TLT team. View the TLT Calendar with dates and times. Also, the Instructional Media Lab (IML – Job 102) will be open for drop-in support beginning on Monday, August 19.  

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Because changes to Sakai were done earlier than expected, the TLT team will be working through the week to make minor adjustments to the system to ensure it is fully functional.  

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Desk at (607) 274-1000
