This morning, the TLC launched the first iteration of improvements to the Sakai workspace and gateway. The changes were applied to the Workspace for all users and the gateway for logged out visitors. Course sites are not affected.
- Message of the Day — The old announcements banner has been replaced with a text-based announcements system. This was a critical change to ensure CSC Online was friendly for users with disabilities. This area will continue to contain campus-wide announcements, which are requested by individual departments.
- Important Links and Web Content — A consolidated list of campus
resources and links for students and instructors. The external links
originally in a left-hand menu have been moved to this new list.
- Account Messages — A new tool developed by the TLC which allows system alerts and messages to be posted for individual accounts and groups of users. This will be used to notify faculty of system changes, shell creation schedules, and other alerts. Students will see student-only messages and alerts, such as survey links, in this area.
Please contact the TLC with any suggestions or feedback that will help improve the Sakai Workspace and/or Gateway for all students and faculty.
