How is a Sakai course site different than a Sakai project site?

Course Site

A course site is the official worksite for a particular academic course and is linked to LOCUS to automatically populate its roster.

Course sites contain a selection of tools and resources provided by the instructor so that students may access course materials, interact with other site participants, and submit work.

Project Site

A project site is not limited to a specific academic term, and can be used to collaborate with colleagues inside and outside of the Loyola community for group work, committees, and research projects. Examples of uses of project sites are university committees, registered and sponsored student organizations, student groups, communities, organizations, collaborative research projects, training initiatives, and groups of instructors who will be teaching lab sections.  All Loyola students, faculty, and staff users can create a project site.
