Sakai FAQs

How much does the Sakai course content cost?

It is currently free to you and your students.

What is included in a Sakai coursepack?

Sakai coursepacks contain student resources and the test bank for your title. In Sakai, there is no way to hide instructor resources—including answer keys for tests and quizzes—from students. When you download a Sakai coursepack, you will find instructor resources in an .xls file separate from the .zip file. Do not upload the spreadsheet into the Sakai server or add it to your course, or you will risk having students see answers to tests and quizzes.

How do I download a coursepack?

Most coursepacks are free and downloadable directly from our site. Instructors must be registered with us to download coursepacks. Follow the steps in this article to download your coursepack.

How do I install a coursepack?

Your campus Sakai/IT administrators can usually help you with this process.

Visit the Sakai documentation wiki for instructions to install the coursepack into your Sakai course.
