In fall 2014, the Kuali Community re-evaluated its approach to community-sourced software and endorsed a professional open source business model around a newly formed for-profit software services company, KualiCo. In this session, Kuali OLE representatives showcase the opportunities/challenges their project faced to complete short-term goals and maintain long-term sustainability. We will discuss how the project was impacted, our institutions’ reactions, and the process the partnership used to chart its course forward with lessons for other open source higher education communities.
