The Sakai Learning Capabilities Design Lenses are the product of the collective efforts of educators, instructional designers, and other pedagogically minded individuals who are part of the Sakai Teaching & Learning community. Each Design Lens represents a perspective from which we can envision the learning capabilities of a new Sakai. After a year of development, the Sakai Open Academic Environment (OAE) embodies much of this shared vision. In this session we?ll focus on what the first release of OAE will deliver from the perspective of the Design Lenses and what learning capabilities our institutions will need to be able to fulfill our short-term and long-term plans. We will reflect on the original Design Lenses and discuss how the Teaching and Learning community can stay engaged with OAE development efforts.
