  • Sakai (the Software) is…
    … a Collaboration and Learning Environment – CLE (or LMS, CMS…)
    …an enterprise-ready collaboration and courseware management platform that provides users with a suite of learning, portfolio, library, project and research tools

  • Licensing
    EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY LICENSE — Sakai’s software is licensed under the terms of the ECL, a variant of the Apache license. The ECL encourages a wide range of use including the production of derivative work in the commercial space.
    NO FEES OR ROYALTIES — Sakai is free to acquire, use, copy, modify, merge, publish, redistribute & sublicense for any purpose provided our copyright notice & disclaimer are included in all copies of the original or derivative work(s).
    NO “COPYLEFT” RESTRICTIONS — unlike GPL redistributed derivative works are neither required to adopt the Sakai license nor publish the source code as open-source.

  • Technical Goals
    SCALABILITY/RELIABILTY — build enterprise-level software; support > 100,000 users in clustered environments; promote high availability and performance optimization.
    EXTENSIBLITY — build in component-based expansion with class loader isolation.
    FLEXIBLITY — simplify local customizations, including internationalization.
    INTEROPERABLITY/INTEGRATION — achieve seamless integration across tools and systems when appropriate; data interoperability and ability to extend Sakai via web services.
    SEPARATION OF CONCERNS — maintain clear abstraction boundaries between tools, services, framework, & presentation.
    July 2009
    10th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.
    17
  • Architecture
    FRAMEWORK (SAF)— registrar for tools & services; provider of common services; no knowledge of domain objects.
    SERVICES— provide business logic & persistence mechanisms; service-to-service communication via documented APIs; presentation agnostic.
    TOOLS— define presentation; exhibit no persistence; discover implementations of APIs at run time using Spring Framework or the Sakai ComponentManager.
    AGGREGATOR/PORTAL — orchestrates tool placement & configures final UI; receives & dispatches requests to tools after setting properties like “context.”

    Challenges to Using OSP
    Functional knowledge of the tools and how they work together
    Takes significant time to understand
    Much of that time will be spent unproductively
    Technical knowledge
    Not every shop understands the XML stack, or how to apply the knowledge to OSP
    Where the technical knowledge exists, the connection to the pedagogy may not be there
    Portfolio implementations are much more than tech projects
    Ongoing leadership is essential in sustaining the effort into the future
