Shopping for Classes in Sakai CLE: a new tool to facilitate student registration

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Monday 3rd June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

Columbia University is pleased to announce the release of the Shopping Period tool for the Sakai CLE. This tool is an extension of the Delegated Access tool and allows schools, departments and instructors to open course content to the public and/or authenticated users during a specific time period for the purpose of registration. Individuals, courses and tools within each course can be made available. Like in the Delegated Access tool, institutions can choose what role (permissions) students shopping for course content will inherit.

The Shopping Period tool was conceived of and designed by Columbia University and was developed by The Longsight Group under contract. Bryan Holladay of Longsight is the lead developer.

The tool was first launched in Jan 2011 as a pilot and production launched in September 2011. During the fall-2011 term, course content of over 2300 courses was made available to students during the registration period.
