If you are are jaguar1 user, you are all set and will be able to log into Sakai using your J number as your username and your jaguar1 email password as your password.

Once you’ve logged in, you can create a Project Site by clicking on Site Setup in the My Settings box on the left.

Then click New and you’re on your way.

We will have a lot of information in the weeks to come on using Project sites, but you can use project sites for almost anything, such as an online meeting site for a research project or student group.  You can even create project sites to start building your course(s) for next semester.  And when your course site (or shell) is created by Banner when the official course schedule is posted, you can simply import the content from your project site into your official course site.

If you have any questions about Sakai, please feel free to contact us at  Also check out our schedule of events and trainings at
