Sakai Project

I’ve read quite a bit about Sakai Project, a Managed Learning Environment with course management, assessment tools, portal functionality, etc.:

  • A framework that builds on the recently ratified JSR 168 portlet standard and the OKI open service interface definitions to create a services-based, enterprise portal for tool delivery
  • A re-factored set of educational software tools that blends the best of features from the participants’ disparate software (e.g., course management systems, assessment tools, workflow, etc.)
  • A synchronization of the institutional clocks of these schools in developing, adopting and using a common set of open source software.

The technical barriers can now be overcome [thanks to:]

  • Service Interface Definitions
  • Standard Portal
  • Tool Interaction Framework
  • Localized User Interface

Let me suggest some further reading I’ve found of value:


If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
