Information about the upgrade

Why are we upgrading

Classes*v2, Yale’s online learning environment based on Sakai, was last upgraded during the Summer of 2012. A major version upgrade is required for us to remain current with supported versions in the community. In addition to some functional enhancements detailed on the What’s New page, this upgrade will improve the security, stability, and overall accessibility of Classes*v2. Because this is a major upgrade, it will be done in two parts.
