Self-paced learning and certificates with Sakai and Drupal

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

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

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

Sakai was originally developed as a tool for traditional higher education institutions where the students are guided through the course by a professor or instructor (often an accompaniment to an in-person course). However, Sakai use is expanding into other learning organizations and often folks want to use it for other kinds of learning needs. These types of courses include totally online and/or self-paced courses, professional development and recertification, and personal enrichment. This presentation will cover some of the challenges of accommodating these uses in Sakai and a high-level overview of one approach Longsight has taken to integrate Sakai with Drupal to accommodate next-gen learning challenges like self-registration, payment, badges and certificates.
