Sakai


It's on the road this week to LA for the Sakai Annual Conference. Sakai is many things: A community, a suite of open source software for teaching and learning with more than 350 academic institutions using it and a Foundation which manages it's direction and future. Oracle is a Commercial Affiliate Partner with Sakai also playing as a Reference Implementation for SAIP. This week's goal? Investigating the feasability of a Sakai H/W Appliance sized on SPARC/Solaris, tuned nicely to our fusion tech stack and delivered to the market via partners such as our good friends at Unicon all with the support of the Foundation. So, as the conference tag line says, " Open Opportunities, Endless Possibilities". See you in LA. I love short flights these days.

IMS Learning Impact

I arrived in Long Beach last night around midnight after a 3 1/2 hour flight delay at Oakland because the plane we were about to fly got hit by lightening earlier in the day. A great way to start a week for sure. Anyways, headed for breakfast now with David from Sharestream. Then it's off to register and first afternoon of the IMS Learning Impact Conference. Graeme is also here from OSL DEV as we're evaluating K-12 uptake in IMS and whether specs in IMS Digital Services may provide the inter-operability framework guidelines for Oracle Student Learning. Our colleagues in higher ed at Oracle are leaders in the field. Linda will be on a panel or two talking about SAIP and IMS DLS. Graeme and I are keen to see updates at tool and content layers with the LTI spec. Here's a short video from Chuck Severance on LTI vision and basics.
