August 20 - 22 [date change]: Sakai Unavailable During Upgrade

Sakai will be upgraded to version 11, and will be unavailable beginning Saturday, August 20 through Monday, August 22, 2016 (until the upgrade is complete). [note that the upgrade was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was moved to coincide with other OIT maintence to reduce the number of interruptions to service.]

Sakai 11 brings the following changes:

  • A new look, with improved experiences on tablets and phones
  • A new gradebook
  • Improvements to tests & quizzes
  • Improvements to the Lessons tool
  • Some older tools have been removed (these were not much used, so shouldn't affect many people)

More information is available on the OIRT Sakai upgrade page, and more detailed descriptions of the changes are on the Sakai Project documentation page.
