Canvas Tip: Make Sure You’re Using the Right Course Site in Canvas
If you’ve had the LMS Transition team assist you by transferring your content out of Sakai and into Canvas, your old content will be placed in an inactive course site with the prefix of “migrated.” Be sure you are using your official SU22 or FA22 course site so your students have access when you publish.

Sakai Tip: What Do You Need Out of Sakai?
If Sakai were to go away tomorrow, what would you regret not having access to anymore? Sakai will be completely gone in January. Request content you want transferred to Canvas today, while there’s still time.
