  • Apereo OAE - State of the project

    by Nicolaas Matthijs, Josh Baron, Clay Fenlason and John Norman

    The Apereo Open Academic Environment is a platform that focusses on group collaboration between researchers, students and lecturers, and strongly embraces openness, creation, re-use, re-mixing and discovery of content, people and groups. A core principle is enabling actual end-users to drive innovation from the inside and contribute in a number of different ways.

    During the summer of 2012, the number of stakeholders in the project shrank, and changes were made to the project?s anticipated usage and deployment model, as well as the initial project scope. In September 2012, the OAE team embarked on a re-architecture of the code base, targeting a much higher scale and a multi-tenant cloud-compatible deployment model, where a single installation can host multiple institutions at the same time.

    This session will provide a summary of the revised goals and their motivation, as well as a brief architectural overview of the new system. A full demo of the new re-implemented functionalities will be done, and we will conclude with a discussion of timelines and priorities.

  • Updates of Dashboard Tool

    by Zhen Qian, Matthew Jones and Chris Kretler

    The presentation will give an update on the current status of Dashboard tool, covering the following three areas:

    1. The load test result and performance enhancement: Dashboard tool has been introduced in 2012 and received great interest within the Sakai Community. Columbia University has run the tool since spring 2012, but had to take the tool offline in Fall, due to serious database contention problem. Dashboard team has been working to address the performance problem. UMich has also run the dashboard load test in the cluster environment with the following settings: (1) Sakai 2.9 baseline; (2) Sakai 2.9 with Dashboard service thread turned on; (3) Sakai 2.9 with active Dashboard tool usage. We will compare and summarize the results for those three scenarios, and provide insights for future tool improvement and adoption.

    2. Mobile Dashboard Project: Typical use cases of the Sakai Dashboard tool fits nicely into the mobile device paradigm.  With this in mind, the University of Michigan is in the midst of refining the Dashboard's mobile interface.  The project has sought continuous user feedback, starting with requirements for presentation, then in refining the interface.  We will talk about the data used to guide the project and show some of the work in progress.

    3. Longsight’s contribution to Dashboard tool: A quick overview of dashboard internal processing highlighting on recent inclusions relating to out of cluster background processing and aggregating older actions to the dashboard.
