Learn how to easily add Sail() courses to your LMS as a third-party tool.
The Sail() Platform is hosted on the cloud, which means it’s easily plugged into your existing education programs and requires minimal deployment, maintenance, and monitoring from faculty and administrators.

Make sure your faculty is prepared to teach on the Sail() platform.
If you are new to teaching courses on the Sail() platform, we ask that instructors follow these steps to prepare, once your school has been approved and onboarded to the platform:
- Apply to gain access to the demo Sail() courses.
- Get familiar with the course materials by going through all conceptual content, primers, and projects for the course as if you were a student.
- Attend the online, hands-on, training session with the Sail() team and other institutions. You’ll receive an invitation prior to the session.
- Get access to the Sail() Community Slack channel. If you need help throughout the onboarding process or during your Sail() course, you can use this channel. You’ll also be able to connect with both the Sail() team and other instructors using Sail() courses.
Get help, collaborate and connect with us and other institutions just like you.
Our community of administrators and faculty is always willing to help those who have questions, feedback, comments, or concerns about the Sail() platform. We have a private Slack channel for onboarded institutions, giving you a way to get support from Sail() staff and connect with other institutions that are using the platform. Our diverse community has one thing in common: making sure students are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow.
