The Sakai Project is a six-million-dollar collaboration among the University of Michigan, Indiana University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Stanford University to develop open source Course Management Systems (CMS/LMS), a portal (uPortal), assessment tools, and other academic software. Sakai’s Tool Portability Profile and use of OKI OSIDs is providing a focused opportunity for library connectivity with CMS.
This briefing will provide an update on Sakai’s planned July 2004 release and a strategic roadmap for Sakai-Libarary connectivity.
