Project sites are designed to facilitate online collaboration. They are similar to organizational sites in Blackboard and can be used to support a wide variety of activities, from students working on class projects or clubs to scientists collaborating on grant proposals, faculty participating in a search or tenure committees, or administrators revising the undergraduate curriculum.
Anyone at Tufts, faculty, students or staff may create project sites for their work. Project sites look almost identical to course sites in Trunk, but they differ in several important ways.
- Project sites are not set-up automatically; they must be manually created.
- Users must be manually added to project sites.
- Project sites have a slightly different set of tools than course sites; they do not include Assignments, Tests & Quizzes and Gradebook2.
- Project sites have a different set of roles; rather than instructors and students, project sites have organizers and participants.
