We had a preview of Sakai on Monday the 4th of April. Some quick notes were that they are an Open Source LMS, It has a great framework, strong eportfolio. An interesting piece of information is that students can upload into a private workspace and work wherever they are and once they are ready to upload their work all they have to do is go over into the private workspace and push it to the dropbox. Those are just a couple plus’s that I see.
To see the full recording go to: WAOL meeting and fast forward to about 30 minutes into the presentation to get to where they are talking about Sakai.
