Once you have established a Sakai training or development site, you may begin to experiment with the course design features that are included with the software and customize the course to fit your needs and the needs of your students. It is up to you to determine what should be included on your site.
When creating your site, you may want to include things like classroom lecture notes, handouts, PowerPoint presentations and quizzes. You may also want to integrate course companion websites and CDs, which often accompany course textbooks, into your site.
Another thing to consider is the addition of licensed, pre-developed course content packages to your site. Several publishers offer these packages and have optimized the content for use with Sakai and other online learning applications.
If you need help locating such materials or adding them to your online course(s), e-mail the eLearning Department or call 407.708.2424. We will be happy to conduct research on your behalf and put you in contact with the appropriate personnel.
Remember, planning ahead is essential! There are time and cost factors related to online course licensing and development that must be considered when creating a new class for student use.
