Sakai - The First Ten Years and the Next Ten Years

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

Monday 3rd June, 2013

4:45pm to 5:30pm (PST)

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.
