This information is intended as a guide for our students who are attending online courses or other academic activities. Online courses will largely be handled using two main resources: Sakai and Zoom
Sakai: Sakai is our primary LMS (learning management system) which professors will use to conduct classroom coursework and activities online.
Web URL for Sakai: https://sakai.claremont.edu/
Note: You will need to login through CAS (Central Authentication Service) which goes through DUO for multi-factor authentication. If you are having problems logging on, please email our Help Desk.

Zoom: Our primary web-conferencing and virtual classroom tool that will be used for live (synchronous) academic activities.
To attend a Zoom event, click on the link provided by your instructor – either by email or check the Sakai page for that class.
Note: You do not need a Zoom account to participate in an online event, only if you are the host. If you are interested in hosting a meeting, you can sign up for a free basic account.
