“My appreciation for Sakai the software, the open source community that supports it, and our hosting partner Longsight in particular, has continued to grow over these past 7 years the University of Notre Dame has deployed Sakai. Most faculty and students just want stability and predictability. Our technology innovators want a quick response time for features and fixes. As an institution, we want control of our own destiny.
Where else are we going to get all that?"
–Laura Gekeler, LMS Administrator
UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME
“Sakai's by-higher-ed, for-higher-ed community is a unique asset that ensures our faculty and student needs are always the product's first priority and never take a backseat to investors, corporations, or stockholders. As we've worked with other vendors, we've learned how hard it is to find the right partner. Longsight's way of working with the Sakai community is wholly aligned with Duke's. We advocate for our local institution's needs and gather feedback from other institutions before contributing features back to Sakai instead of building customizations on our own to maintain.”
–Michael Greene, Associate Director
“Longsight has hosted Sakai for Allegheny College for more than a decade. We are extremely pleased with Longsight's responsiveness and ability to work with us to meet the College's needs while maintaining a highly reliable service at a very competitive rate.”
–Rick Holmgren, Chief Information Officer
"I wanted to take a second to thank you and Longsight. We are phenomenally busy
with support requests since our transition to remote learning. But the support that we've been getting is extremely responsive and helpful, and I wanted to say how much we appreciate it."
–Adam Hauerwas, Academic Support and Research Specialist
