Creating a Sakai Course

How to Create a Sakai Course

Text Directions

  1. Go to Sakai and log in with your WFU username and password.
  2. Click on the My Workspace tab.
  3. Click Worksite Setup (on the left)
  4. Click New (in the red bar).
  5. Make sure course site is selected , choose the appropriate term from the drop down menu, and click Continue.
  6. Select the section(s) for which you want to create a Sakai course. You can only create one Sakai course at a time, but you can combine sections into a single Sakai course by selecting multiple sections. Click Continue at the bottom.
  7. Provide information for the Course Site Information section and click Continue.
  8. Select the tools you desire in the Course Site Tools section. Scroll down and choose whether or not to use material from previous Sakai courses. Click Continue.
  9. Keep Publish site checked if you want the course to be immediately available to enrolled students. Uncheck it if you want to work on it before allowing students to access it (but remember to publish it before classes start by going to Site Info > Manage Access).
    You typically do NOT want the site to be open to non-enrolled students, so DO NOT check the “Can be joined by anyone with authorization to log in”. Click Continue.
  10. You will see a summary of the choices you made. If everything is correct, click Create Site.
