Sakai: Add yourself as a student

In most Sakai tools, you can see something very close to the student view. However, if you’d like to create a student account for yourself, that can be useful. You must have a private (non-Rutgers) email account for this :

  • Log into Sakai and enter your site (by clicking on its tab)
  • From the Site Info tool on the left, choose “Add Participants”
  • In the *2nd* box, add your full external email address (e.g., jms123@yahoo.com)
  • Click “Continue”
  • Check “Student” to give your new alias Student access
  • Click “Finish”
  • You will receive an email message at your external account with your temporary password. Your email address ( jms123@yahoo.com) will be your new user ID.
  • Log into your external email to get your password. (You may have to wait up to 15 minutes to receive the email message from Sakai.)
  • Log your “real” self out of Sakai and log in again as jms123@yahoo.com (or whatever).
  • Now you are your own student!
