Isaak News


Become an Isaak Course Coordinator

Brock University staff and faculty that are Isaak Course Coordinators have access to tools like "Worksite Setup" which is a big advantage to have when searching through a large number of Isaak/Sakai sites (both revealed and hidden). The tool does not grant access to other's Isaak/Sakai sites, but there are some concerns about the danger of possibly deleting archival courses, so it's important that only approved Isaak Course Coordinators get access to this tool. Approved Isaak Course Coordinators also get access to future and piloted features as well as information the CPI and ITS maintain on issues currently affecting our Isaak/Sakai system.

If you are an interested Brock University staff or faculty member please join the Isaak_Course_Coordinator Isaak/Sakai site and apply.
