Sakai (https://sakai.bradley.edu) allows instructors to easily build online courses and develop community oriented portal environments for all users for any subject without knowing HTML or other programming languages. Instructors and students can access Sakai anytime, anywhere. The "Preparing Course Sites" in Sakai tip sheet (http://sakaihelp.bradley.edu/prepsites) will give faculty a check list for preparing a course for the start of the semester. Faculty and Students can use the Overview of Help Topics (http://sakaihelp.bradley.edu/topics) to become familiar with the tools in Sakai.
