This article summarizes Sakai, what it is and how it’s used by students and faculty.
Sakai is an open-source Collaboration and Learning Environment software. It provides the framework, tool-set and environment for faculty to conduct and manage courses and for students to engage and interact in those courses.
Courses available in Sakai include online, hybrid and traditional. Johnson University belongs to a consortium called LAMP which helps to lower the cost, use and management of Sakai by sharing it with other LAMP institutions.
Johnson University has been using Sakai since 2009.
Johnson University has been using Sakai 2.9.1 since May 27, 2013.
Sakai is hosted in multiple locations for enterprise-level access and redundancy in order to provide best possible up-time for students and faculty. You can check the current status of Sakai here.
