We are no longer a pilot and therefore have a new and improved blog available at:
Our Sakai Pilot Blog will remain available but will not be updated.
We hope to see you on the new site and thank you for your continued interest.]]>
1. Customize your site tabs (remove or hide sites you no longer use)
2. Know where to get help (choose “Sakai Support”)
3a. Instructors: Publish course sites to make them available to students.

We look forward to serving you this year!]]>
On November 5, 2010, New York University launched the first pre-release pilot of the Sakai OAE — a revolutionary platform for academic networking and collaboration. The NYU instance will be known as the ATLAS Network (Advanced Teaching, Learning, And Scholarship Network). The pilot will grow to include 5,000 students and faculty from six different NYU schools.
Below is a 13-minute screencast of their implementation.
The NYU pilot focuses on two important areas of need.
- It provides a single NYU network for many diverse university communities to use.
- And it provides a flexible set of options for implementing portfolios.
- searchable profiles,
- group spaces and uploaded content, and
- two portfolio implementations.
The pilot is being overseen by a cross-school, academic-led committee charged with oversight of the development and implementation of the Sakai OAE environment at NYU. Initial funding for Sakai at NYU was provided by a 2008 National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities Start-Up grant.
It’s exciting to see the work of so many come together! Congrats!]]>
One principle is: Change is a process, not an event.
We thought it might be useful, then, to look back at the earliest beginnings of the Sakai Pilot at UNC starting in February 2007 through to today. Seeing the process from this vantage point highlights the efforts of many who were able to try, to learn, to do, and to change over time. The combination of your efforts helped to create the timeline below. As always, thank you!
