Last week, the Daily Tarheel reported that the ITS Executive Steering Committee passed a motion to begin a three-year transition to Sakai. This is a big 1-up for the pilot and for our campus. We look forward to working with faculty, staff and students to listen, learn, and leverage the wealth of expertise that exists at UNC. We are already seeing creative innovations spread through departments (we will share those with you here soon). This change also brings new opportunities to connect with the Sakai community and the great work being done on Sakai 2.x as well as on the Open Academic Environment (formerly Sakai 3). It is an exciting time for learning and collaboration @ UNC!
