Portals and LMSs (and Collaboration, SIS, Library, and other Suites)

Clay from Georgia Tech shot me an email recently which spurred me to try and put to words how my thinking has evolved about the relationship of an enterprise portal and Sakai, and where these technologies and communities are heading. In general I think the focus of “enterprise portals” has always been one of integration ...
