The Open Source Portfolio (OSP) tools in Sakai are well known for their assessment matrices and shareable portfolios. Although these tools have served the community well, more flexibility, less coding, and expanded capabilities are needed to address the needs of future portfolio users in Sakai. MATI Montreal, Kyoto University, and Three Canoes LLC have teamed up to launch an Apereo incubation project for Karuta, a flexible solution in the spirit of OSP that is LTI-enabled for integration with Sakai. Come learn about the current status and future plans for Karuta and see a demo of this new and exciting portfolio project.
In the past three years or so, a major disruption has occurred in the higher education world, and its name is massive open online course (MOOC). Now anyone can take a college course online, and they decide what and when they can learn, or even if they want credit for it. And with companies like Coursera offering courses using a slick and new platform, we need to venture into this realm as well. This new style of teaching and learning is another transformation in the world of distance education that has taken the traditional format and turned it on its head. So why is MOOC course design so important? We will look at MOOC design, load testing, “aftercare” of a MOOC and how you can effectively run a MOOC at your institution using Sakai.

The Samigo Tests Enhancement Project (or STEP) is a community project that grew out of the first ever Sakai Virtual Conference held last year. The registration fees from that event have been combined and are being used to fund development for the Sakai Tests & Quizzes tool (a.k.a. Samigo). This webinar will provide a brief overview of the project goals and what the STEP team has accomplished so far. There will also be plenty of time for Q&A with our panelists.
