Sakai Review

Pros

Easy to submit assignments, view grades, and take assessments. Professors, not always tech-oriented, still find a way to communicate resources effectively with Sakai.

Cons

UI needs an update, text editors are old and outdated

Sakai Makes College Easy!

I have had a great experience with Sakai. It has been an easy tool to use while I’m in college!

Pros

It was so easy to keep track of all my classes. I can always see what courses I’m in, and how far I am in the class work in those courses. Taking quizzes and tests is also super easy with Sakai which is necessary when in college.

Cons

The discussion boards can be a little confusing at times, it is difficult to tell which ones you have already posted on.

Inferior to Canvas

Pros

Sakai has a very basic loadout that doesn't clutter the screen with unnecessary information.

Cons

Compared to Canvas, Sakai became an inferior software. Difficult to look at (especially for those who had dyslexia and couldn't understand tabled information easily) and the time the software took to actually update information was slow (on the order of an hour or to at times).

Sakai as a Platform for Bachelor's Courses

Pros

As I mentioned previously, this system readily makes course grades accessible from any online outlet (iPad, smart phone/computer). There is also an option for email notifications with an encrypted link. I also liked how once you got the hang of the features, they were very easy to deploy with new courses.

Cons

Sakai does experience site outages every now and then which makes signing up for new courses a small nightmare. Once it works though, everything is magical!
