Online Collaboration and Learning
Sakai is the name of OHSU's online course management system. Sakai is a suite of useful web-based tools supporting communication and collaboration. It is used by more than 200 OHSU courses every term to distribute course materials, provide course announcements, submit assignments online and provide collaborative workspace. It can be accessed from any computer that has an Internet connection and a recent web browser, enabling students and educators to connect from across the globe.
OHSU's Sakai software is supported by the Sakai Help Desk. We offer technical and user support seven days a week: Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and weekends from noon until 5 p.m. You can contact us using our web-based form, or via e-mail at email@example.com, or by phone at 1-877-9725249 (or 4-7074 on the PDX campus).

Sakai is open source software created and developed by the Sakai Project. The Sakai Project is a community of universities, schools, and other education organizations who cooperate to jointly develop the Sakai Collaborative Learning Environment.
