Sakai is Notre Dame's main online platform used by faculty and staff to provide learning materials and activities that may supplement a face-to-face or blended course. Additional learning tools can be added on to Sakai to extend the core functionality and features of the system. Students or participants may use Sakai to access course material, submit assignments, take quizzes, view grades, and interact with classmates and instructors through online discussions and direct messaging. More About Sakai

Sakai is slated to be retired at the end of December 2022. While most courses are still being run through Sakai, a gradual transition to the Canvas platform with select on-campus courses will begin Fall 2021. Learn more about the LMS Transition Pilot Program.
