I've been talking about this for a couple of months, but we will be upgrading our Sakai instance to the latest version, which is 21. The upgrade will require that Sakai be completely down for a few hours in the early morning, but after that, Sakai will be back up and running for the rest of the day. 

This is going to be a very subtle upgrade with most improvements aimed at the background administrative level. For instructors, here are some things you can look for:

  • Lessons improvements, such as revamped Add/Edit Dialog, new Add Layout template options, improved Reorder and Date Release Indicators, and more color and formatting options for headings, buttons, and borders.
  • Gradebook enhancements for exporting category averages and messaging students from the gradebook
  • Rubrics are now searchable and can contain weighted criteria
  • Dashboard - new organizational tool you can add to your course in Site Info>Manage Tools
  • Dark Mode - Coming Soon!

Anyone who has an NPS account can log in at If you find that you aren't added to any courses there, let me know and I'll add you to a demo course. Also, please note that changes to the development server will not translate over to our production server. This server is strictly for demonstration.
