While it isn’t explicitly embedded into Sakai, the University subscriptions afford Microsoft Teams as a platform for project management. The tool requires a bit to get up to speed on its functions, but it has a threadable chat/conversation space, a file repository, and other features that afford collaborative work. For instructors whose courses are sufficiently reliant on project based learning, this is probably the best platform for it available to us, and is likely worth the investment. Instructors can also be added as team members, and can thus dip into groups to provide help, or even just monitor progress to ensure students are able to engage despite their remote circumstances.
