Spring Courses Evaluating Sakai

Home > News & Updates > Spring Courses Evaluating Sakai

A number of spring semester courses are using Sakai, a collaboration and learning environment, which is being considered for the eventual update to CourseWorks. These courses are part of an ongoing test and evaluation of the Sakai system. Assisted by CCNMTL's educational technologists, instructors are helping evaluate components of the Sakai system under real classroom conditions. The Sakai Project is supported by a community of universities and is currently in use at Stanford, Michigan, Yale and numerous other campuses. One goal of this effort is to introduce new tools, such as blogs, wikis, and podcasts -- tools that did not exist when the current CourseWorks system was implemented at Columbia in late 2001. Forthcoming news releases will track the progress of this important effort.
