We are in the process of asking Sakai Pilot participants to share information about their experiences using Sakai this past year. We will be posting brief segments from participant interviews here.

A commonly asked question is, “How do the tools and functionality between Blackboard and Sakai compare?” Here is a quick summary of LMS functionality (new window).
The Sakai Action Group is in the process of examining data collected from Fall 2008 and plans to publish a summary of findings here in the coming weeks. The Final Report is expected in June/July 2009.
As part of a formative assessment, both students (n=77) and instructors (n=13) were surveyed online. One of the questions was:
- Faculty: What three adjectives best describe your teaching style?
- Students: What three adjectives best describe your instructor’s teaching style?
We encourage our interactive, enthusiastic, and wonderfully supportive instructors to apply for the nationally-recognized Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award!
Applications are due by 2/27/08.
