Summer 2013 e-Learning Upgrade

New look to UF e-Learning

E-Learning will soon have a new look. During the Spring/Summer break week, UFIT will upgrade Sakai, the programming behind e-Learning at UF, from the current 2.8 version to 2.9. Several new features and tools will be available, including:

Navigation Tool:
Icons next to each tool in the right-hand menu bar will be easier to navigate, and the menu bar can be collapsed or expanded.

Assignments:
More detailed instructions are provided when using Turnitin. Also, ‘Submit as student’ is now available. This will allow instructors to submit assignments when students experience system or technical difficulties.

Gradebook 2:
The upgraded version allows for the import of settings from a previous semester.

Learning Module (i.e., Lesson Builder):
The sequential release of tasks and content is now possible.

Instructors requesting new course shells for Summer will experience the updated look first-hand. After the upgrade, e-Learning will be a more intuitive environment and provide additional tools for a greater teaching and learning experience.
