Ten diverse institutions have come together to design solutions that make library services and resources easier to access and more useful from within Sakai 3. This presentation will share the designs we have arrived at so far, the user-centered design process used, including a multi-institutional user research study, and discuss next steps and how to move forward with development.

  • Library – Sakai 3 Integration Project: Series of web meetings from March 2009 – present.
  • Instructors are using a mix of scholarly and non-scholarly resources depending on the context. Definitions of “scholarly” vary.
  • Instructors are focusing on increasing interaction with and amongst students. Feedback is key to actually seeing growth. Instructors are passionate about their areas – they want to see this passion shared with their students.
  • Instructors are using learning resources for readings, assignments, lectures and projects.  When looking for learning resources in the context of a course, instructors usually start with a known resource: previous work, a known author, a colleague. etc.  Their selection criteria relates highly to their goals of engaging students and having reliable, easy access to content.  This results in an increasing number of web content being used, particularly multimedia such as YouTube videos and images.
