Sakai account creation procedure

Sakai is the main online course management software that is used within Claremont. It is run by HMC.

Note:It should not be confused with the course registration systems.

In order to login users will need to have a Sakai account created for them. Requests for account creation should be sent to . Once this is created users can login using their home campus credentials.

Once a user has an account in Sakai, they can login using their normal username/password that they use on their own campus. When a user selects their campus (or enters @<3 letter code> after their username) it routes the authentication request to their campus LDAP. Bind credentials have been configured so Sakai can bind to each directory.
