In this session, we will review and articulate the benefits of integrating third party tools into our instance of Sakai. These include single methodology for course evaluation delivery, enhanced communication tools, improved integrity of testing procedures, resolution of limited quotas for storage media, and supplemental tutoring. We will also look at some of the challenges such as technical glitches, accessibility issues, support, authentication (single sign on versus separate authentication), instructional design, training, and system upgrades. Our review will focus on the following tools:
