The Sakai OAE has much potential as a course management tool, though there is less exploration of using the platform as a viable scholarly communications tool. As a large global university, we aim to build and nurture relationships between scholars, to promote their work within the university and beyond, and to foster links between scholarship and teaching. We will discuss the pilot use of the Sakai OAE as a platform for scholarly collaborations and research among a small group of faculty members and graduate students. In addition to speaking about the successes and challenges of using the tool to disseminate scholarship, facilitate peer review, and promote and sustain fruitful exchanges among scholars, we will propose design considerations. Additionally, we will offer broader considerations for creating a continuum between the teaching, learning, and research portions of academia. This was presented at the 2012 Jasig-Sakai Conference.
