    You did the right thing. Follow your heart and instincts. Don't let some negative posters get you down. We all need to rant and get it out of our system. Hope you feel better soon.

    This one took five minutes, I know we aren't allowed to talk about the content much but it's about the Sandy Hook tragedy so I wanted to give my fellow turks a heads up.

    You're looking for the learning system. Most of the time if I type in the name of the university followed by "Sakai" it will come up and if that doesn't work I try "Blackboard" and it works
    finding the staff is a little harder though...

    Wanna share how you're finding the admin people? That's really why I lost confidence in them. Any good pointers? :)

    Yeah, that's what I've been doing. I can find the name of the system very easily, but on the 3 that I've tried, I cannot find the Admin to save my life :(

    they're not easy to find, and in many cases they're not there at all, or behind generic titles so you couldn't possibly tell what their exact role with the LMS is... i had a lot better luck with the batch from a few mornings ago, did at least 20 or 30 of those, this one i don't think i've submitted more than three that turned up a decent amount of info...

    from what i can tell, it looks like these schools evaluated sakai at one point and they're listed on sakai's website as a client, but it appears that some of them ended up using a different product, be it moodle or blackboard or another software platform...

    So if I do them and not able to find the Admin, I wonder if he will reject?

    no idea, and because the other morning's batch of these hasn't approved while hits posted after those have, i think a lot of us are not comfortable just submitting a bunch of n/a responses, even though that's all there is to put in many of these cases...

    I wish he wouldn't have put the specific job titles and let us enter those because they can vary so much

    haha i mentioned this in several notes... when i first started doing them the other morning, i sort of naturally thought there would be a field for title between last name and email address and kept being surprised when it wasn't there...

    If something doesn't pop up soon, I'm going to consider today a loss and just go do something else.

    yeah that would've been a big help because some of the schools I did either don't have a manager or didn't list but they had a lot of other jobs that aren't even listed
