Sakai: Lessons overview
The Lessons tool in Sakai allows an instructor to organize different types of content in one location: text, videos, files (such as PDFs of journal articles, assignment instructions); direct links to assignments, discussion boards, and tests/quizzes in Sakai. Putting these resources in one location, which may be organized by unit, date, etc. provides students a central location to access course materials so they do not need to navigate to different tools. It allows you to organize content from all of Sakai’s tools in a way that makes sense for your course.
Duke University explains Lessons and provides good examples of Lessons pages here. Look for Rutgers examples coming soon.
