My Workspace

  • This first window you see when you login is called My Workspace. This site is your personal user space, it is not a course site.

    Interface of Sakai@UD

    1. Logout link: When you are finished working on Sakai, remember to click this link, especially if you are working in a public computing site.
    2. Site Tabs: The site tabs give you access to your course or project sites. The white tab is your active site. If you have access to many sites, a My Active Sites tab will appear and give you access to your currently available sites. You can hide/reveal and customize the order of your tabs: go to My Workspace, click Preferences and then click Customize Tabs.
      Note: Hidden sites will not show up on My Active Sites
    3. Menubar: The menubar lists a particular site's tools.
    4. Minimize/Expand Menubar: Minimizing the menubar (3) provides more screen space for the content area (5).
    5. Content Area: This zone is reserved to display of the content of a tool or site.
    6. Bottom Links: See below.

  • You can upload personal files and look at a dashboard view of all the activity in all your courses. See the My Workspace Help Topic for more information.
