Collaborators: General LMS Comments
It's important to have a tool like Sakai. So much
collaborative work goes on that one needs a
tool to keep it organized.
It's nearly impossible to come up with a one-size-
ﬁts-all application for UNC-CH. However, Sakai is a
very capable successor to Blackboard, plus it has
the added beneﬁt of meeting a variety of other needs
(committees, working groups, research collaboration,
administrative functions) with one tool.
Where possible, I think that the University should be
using and supporting software that is free and open-
source, such as Sakai.
