conneX is the Department’s Learning Management Portal and Collaboration System that allows instructors, researchers, and students to interactively create and participate in shared websites for teaching or research purposes.
conneX has been deployed using Sakai Software which is developed by the Sakai Project. The Sakai Project is an open source development project maintained by a collaboration of Universities to develop specialized software for instructors, students and researchers.
Login privileges to conneX are available to all Computer Science students, researchers, faculty and staff with either a Netlink or COSI account. Site owners can also assign external guests login privileges to their sites using the external email addresses.
Guests who would like access to an individual site should contact the site’s owner for guest privileges.
Faculty, Staff and grad students require a COSI account to create a new conneX Web Site.
Memberships in course sites are automatically populated by course enrollment data on a nightly basis. Students doing late enrollment should wait till the following day before accessing new course data.
Creation and membership in project sites is manually maintained by site owners. Project sites are not course related, and can be associated with individual research projects, groups, or any other shared interest.
