Defining Sakai: Community

200+ PRODUCTION/PILOT DEPLOYMENTS: From 200 to 200,000 users

Sakai 3: Why?

Changing expectationsGoogle docs/apps, Social Networking, Web 2.0Success of project sites = Sakai beyond coursesYears of hard-won knowledgeNew technologiesStandards-based, open source projectsJCR (Jackrabbit)Open Social (Shindig)Client-side programmingJavaScript/AJAXFluid Project

Users expect more based on their experience with so-called Web 2.0 applications. Project sites in Sakai 2 have been incredibly successful. So successful that the demands on these capabilities have grown and we need to respond to our users.The emergence of new technologies allow us to use best-of-breed open source solutions where we previously had custom code. We can also open Sakai development to developers who dont know Java. An important step in our long-term goal of making Sakai a platform for innovation accessible to faculty and students.
