As the Sakai CLE prepares to enter a second decade of service, the emergence of highly scalable, cloud-based SAAS alternatives coupled with increasing demand for analytics-based learning platforms raise questions about the CLE's development roadmap. Can Sakai's community source model deliver new and innovative capabilities at a pace fast enough to keep up with competitors? Is the CLE governance model adequate for the ongoing logistical, technical and functional challenges the community faces? Can longstanding barriers to participation and investment be overcome and sufficient energy harnessed to reinvigorate project fundamentals? Seth Theriault and Anthony Whyte consider these and other questions confronting the Sakai CLE and offer in response a set of actionable proposals for change.
Anthony Whyte is a Program Manager working for both the Library and Information Technology Services at the University of Michigan. He currently serves as vice-chair of the Sakai CLE Technical Coordination Committee. Between 2005 and 2012 he was seconded to the Sakai Foundation, serving in a variety of roles in the service of the Sakai CLE Community.
