When you login to e-Learning in Sakai, the first page you encounter is "My Workspace." This page is unique to you as the user. It will show any Calendar entries, Mail (Messages), Discussion Postings (Forums) and Announcements that are current in any course or Project Site in which you are enrolled. There is also space for community wide announcements delivered by e-Learning Support Services under "Message of the Day" and "My Workspace Information." All of these tools, except for Announcements, allows you to set some preferences by clicking on the Options link at the top of each area.
