NYC-Sakai UG & Sakai 3 (and more)

Had the chance to meet up with some people from all around (NYU, Columbia, Marist, Zach and some others) last night in NYC to talk about all things including what sounds like some really exciting movement around Sakai 3. Was a great time, and real refreshing to see everyone again in person. Sadly I’m a ...

“Sakai Courseware Management” – *the* Sakai Book

This may be old news to others, but I finally have my copy of the new “Sakai Courseware Management” book (courtesy of the folks over at Packt) and more surprisingly have even been able to carve out time to read the contents. For people who may not have been aware, this is the book that ...

Sakai Tools – Inside/Outside the Box

Some interesting sakai-ux discussion tied in with thoughts I’ve been having recently related to native vs. integrated services and content in portal-type environments… where do the lines get drawn, and how do you handle horizontal services? From a functionality/architecture point of view, the idea of loosly coupled integrations with external services like wikis, or Google ...

ITWeb :Unisa embraces Microsoft

ITWeb :Unisa embraces Microsoft: “[ Johannesburg, 3 December 2008 ] – At a time when many public organisations are migrating to open source solutions – the University of SA (Unisa) has chosen to embrace Microsoft. From 2009, registered students at Unisa will be required to sign up for a Microsoft-provided e-mail service. The free e-mail ...

Don’t Stop at Gmail | The Hoya

Don’t Stop at Gmail | The Hoya: “Georgetown has never been on the cutting edge of technology. Changes to our e-mail system and wireless service have come slowly, and the university is still in the process of revamping data security following a major security breach last semester. Here is an opportunity to cut costs without ...

Ruby, Builder, and CourseManagementXML Data

We needed to populate some training course and class rosters into Sakai to let people play with site creation, roster attachment, and publishing tests to students. While we could have used webservices, we decided to leverage the built-in CmSyncJob and generate an XML file to dump out the data, and then sync it into the ...

FCKEditor config.js pain

FCKEditor config.js pain
So… I was editing config.js to cut down the option from the default Sakai toolbar configuration for a Sakai build (which makes a huge diffence in being able to see stuff in the richTextAreas). I got burned for a while (well, 10 minutes anyway) due to Firefox and some aggressive JS caching. Did a bunch ...

OSP ePortfolios & Sakai Courseware?

I started this entry while I was riding a train back from the Laguardia ePortfolio Conference I’m endeavoring to reflect upon and synthesize threads from various (enlightening) presentations I’ve seen, and discussions I’ve had the privilege of participating in. First a brief plug: the content from the conference was fantastic — many congratulations to the ...

Desire2Blog: Sakai Seems to Think It’s Over

Desire2Blog: Sakai Seems to Think It’s Over: Maybe Sakai thinks they are finished with this thing, but I’m pretty sure that D2L, SFLC, Blackboard, and all the other players are expecting it to continue on for quite some time. It could very well be that their input from this point forward will be minimal or ...
