Sakai — Course and Collaboration System

Sakai is one of three available course management systems at Rutgers University, after a two semester pilot it was chosen by the Office of Instructional and Research Technology as the central replacement for WebCT. Faculty and instructors may use Sakai for their course web sites, or may choose to use the similar eCompanion system that is supported by the Division of Continous Education and Outreach.
