Online Learning:

Sakai:  Sakai is our primary LMS (learning management system) which professors will use to conduct classroom coursework and activities online.

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.
