BOF: Save the endangered Sakai CLE Online Help

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

Tuesday 4th June, 2013

2:00pm to 2:45pm (PST)

Sakai CLE's online help feature needs help itself. It is technically complex to administer, is tied to one higher ed institution's knowledge base, is difficult for documentation specialists to keep up with, and does not leverage the knowledge of the crowd.

If we, the community, do not take active steps to save it, Sakai's help tool's sustainability is in jeopardy. As it is, it is less than ideal for updating with changes, and managing translations.

Please lend your voice to the conversation.

Is Sakai CLE's online help tool still needed?
What are the needs at your institution?
What are technical solutions for this problem and where do we find resources, people, to make the solution work?
