  7. 7. 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.
