In an earlier blog post, we mentioned that the number of students using Sakai this term is 7 times what it was last Spring. Several Romance Languages faculty opted to use Sakai for their large enrollment, multi-section courses. They are the first group at UNC to use Sakai with multiple sections.
Advantages of Sakai for large-enrollment, multi-section courses:
- 1 Sakai site per large enrollment course (i.e., SPAN 105)
- Shared content ensures consistency across diverse sections
- Multiple sections employ “group-aware” tools so students & instructors see only their own section information
- Course coordinators see all section information.
Below are the stories of three course coordinators who are responsible for the overall management of course content, instructors, and students in selected Spanish courses. Hear what Bill Maisch, Hosun Kim and Josefa Lindquist have to say. Three coordinators in three minutes!
