  • What's New in Kaltura CLE?

    by Robert Long and Aaron Zeckoski

    Managing media (video, audio, images, etc.) for a campus is a complex task. Kaltura provides a solution for encoding and storage of media content which integrates with many popular platforms like Sakai. Come see a demo of the new features in the Sakai Kaltura integration for CLE. We will also discuss new and upcoming features in Kaltura and the Sakai integrations and finally see how schools are currently using Kaltura with Sakai and discuss what needs the community might have.

  • ElasticSearch: You know, for Search

    by John Bush

    Elasticsearch is an Open Source (Apache 2), Distributed, RESTful, Search Engine built on top of Apache Lucene. Its was designed from the ground up to be cloud friendly. This session will explore the migration of Sakai's search system to an embedded ElasticSearch solution. The fundamentals of deploying and using ElasticSearch will be discussed in a way that is useful for any project that might need its capabilities.

    Elasticsearch is designed to scale out horizontally. As such its being used in production on top of huge datasets. Our experiences tuning the system for typical data sets experienced with Sakai will be presented.

  • Discussion of Future Learning Analytics Projects within Apereo

    by Josh Baron

    Over the past two years Marist College has lead the NGLC-funded Open Academic Analytics Initiative (OAAI) which has developed an open-source academic early alert system using Sakai and Pentaho, an open-source Business Intelligence tool, designed to identify students who are at risk to not complete their courses? successfully and then deploy an intervention intended to help the student succeed.

    With this project coming to its conclusion, there is interest in expanding the OAAI work and possibly creating a "learning analytics" project within Apereo. Although open to all related topics, this BOF will focus on discussions related to expanding learning analytics work within the Apereo community which could include Sakai as well as many other Apereo projects (Student Success Plan, uPortal, Bedeworks, etc.) which provide useful data for predictive analytics.

    At 4:45pm to 5:30pm, Wednesday 5th June
