Sakai project sites may have been used for non-academic or non-instructional purposes. Unlike Sakai, sites that do not directly serve or support an academic and/or instructional purpose as outlined above will not be permitted on Canvas. Examples of sites in this category include sites used for:
- Project management, committee work, and/or other administrative purposes.
- Repositories for or the distribution of non-academic/non-instructional content.
- Communication not-related to academics or instruction.
- Support administrative purposes such as tenure-tracking.
- Training/content related to non-instructional technologies or training/content related to administrative purposes targeting only staff and/or faculty.
As Rutgers University migrates from Sakai, review the Sakai project purpose and an alternative for your Sakai project site.
