Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a summary report from the Sakai conference last November. Sakai is an open source LMS developed and used primarily by huge universities. This summary is chock-full of fantastic tidbits. There's a video, for example, on the Sakai Commons Tool, which emphasizes authentic rather than forced community. There's Comfortable PandA, a Japanese browser extension (supports Firefox, Chrome, Edge...) that helps students easily check new assignments, find notifications, etc. And there's Tsugi, a tool that handles the learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) level to help teachers build learning sites, tools and content. And more. I still don't know how healthy the Sakai community is, but I love the ideas here. The Sakai community is coordinated by the Apereo Foundation.
