Laulima Updated to Sakai 11.4

Below is a list of some of the changes on the Laulima system after upgrading from Sakai 10.7 to 11.4.
User Interface/Layout:
Some interface elements have changed in Sakai 11.

  1. Sakai 11 no longer uses iframes, this is the direction the web is going, though now some content will not be embeddable and will have to open in a new tab/window
    1. Because there are no iframes the blue double arrows to reset the middle portion of the page no longer exists.
  2. My Workspace tab is now called Home
  3. The More Sites tab is now Sites
  4. The Log Out link is now found after clicking your account name in the upper right
  5. There is a “bread crumb” navigation bar under the tab cluster
  6. For instructors, when a site is unpublished (not visible to students), It will be indicated by a yellow banner, along with a link to publish the site, below the “bread crumb” navigation bar
  7. The Home tool is now called Overview by default
  8. When you are an instructor in a site, changing to a simulated student view (and back) is now located on the left, above the list of tools, under “View Site As”
  9. The profile image now appears next to your name in the upper left corner of the Laulima window.New Laulima layout image
