  • Dynamic Online Help for Sakai CLE

    by Roland Groen, Alan Berg and Neal Caidin

    The current online help for Sakai is tied to one higher ed institution's internal knowledge base, the content integration into Sakai CLE is challenging and lacks features such as embedding pictures and video.
    Come learn about an exciting possible replacement for the Online Help tool with The Knowledge Base Tool, already in production at the University of Amsterdam. The tool has a set of contemporary features such as online authoring, media support, linking, smart filtering, comments, favorites, voting, and many more. We want to make the KN tool a tool that is capable of leveraging the knowledge of the crowd, the CLE user community, for getting the best and most up to date information possible.
    Let's envision together what the potential for this could be, and explore how we can get institutional commitment of money or time, to make this a reality.

  • Real-world learning environment governance for the small, the new and the brave.

    by Laura Gekeler, Ed Gomes, Janet Hill and Alan Regan

    Meet our Panelists: Duke, Tufts, Pepperdine and Notre Dame, relative newbies to the world of Sakai. Find out how their respective institutions deal with colleges and schools pursuing their own teaching and learning technologies. Is there an assumption that everything plugs in to Sakai? Who prioritizes? Who runs Sakai? Do they have a team or department with a mandate from the Provost or something less official? Does open source create different user expectations that affect governance?

    Join panelists in fruitful conversation about our experiences. How are our relationships holding up with stakeholders at our institutions? With third party service providers? Between our internal service providers? We'll share resourcing and governance models for our Sakai services, and hope to hear those from audience participants as well.

    Panelists will first introduce themselves and outline their resourcing and governance structures and then facilitate broader discussion.

    At 1:00pm to 1:45pm, Monday 3rd June

  • Apereo Incubation Process

    by Ian Dolphin

    The Jasig incubation process represents the distillation of significant experience in the development of open source software, and the communities that support it in higher education. Reviewing this process and developing it further was an early priority for Apereo. This session will present the proposals of the Apereo Incubation Review Working Group, and allow community members to discuss and further refine the future direction of the Apereo incubation process.

    Led by Ian Dolphin and members of the Incubation Review Working Group.

    At 3:45pm to 4:30pm, Monday 3rd June

  • Sakai - The First Ten Years and the Next Ten Years

    by Charles Severance

    The Sakai project is nearly ten years old, having started informally in June 2003 and then formally funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in January 2004. There is no question that Sakai has brought tremendous value to the LMS market - even for schools that have never used or installed the product. Sakai has been a force for good and shown other LMS systems the right path to meet the real needs of their users. Sakai is the only Apache-style open source / open community LMS project in the marketplace. Going forward, we need to think carefully about the kinds of activities that we will undertake beyond Sakai 2.9 to maintain and strengthen our place in the marketplace in an increasingly standards-oriented, component-based learning systems, trends toward multi-tenancy, software as service, MOOCs and extreme scalability. In this presentation, we will take a look at the past, present, and future of the Sakai Collaborative Learning Environment.
