What is Sakai?
The Sakai CLE is a flexible, enterprise application that
supports teaching, learning and scholarly collaboration
in either fully or partially online environments. The
Sakai CLE is distributed as free, open-source software,
which offers the ultimate in flexibility and avoids the
risks of vendor lock-in and escalating license costs.
Built by educators for educators.

Licensing
EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY LICENSE — Sakai’s software is
licensed under the terms of the ECL, a variant of the Apache
license. The ECL encourages a wide range of use including the
production of derivative work in the commercial space.
NO FEES OR ROYALTIES — Sakai is free to acquire, use, copy,
modify, merge, publish, redistribute & sublicense for any
purpose provided our copyright notice & disclaimer are

derivative works are neither required to adopt the Sakai
license nor publish the source code as open-source.

Technical Goals
SCALABILITY/RELIABILTY — build enterprise-level software;
support > 100,000 users in clustered environments; promote
high availability and performance optimization.
EXTENSIBLITY — build in component-based expansion with class
loader isolation.
FLEXIBLITY — simplify local customizations, including
internationalization.
INTEROPERABLITY/INTEGRATION
—
achieve
seamless
integration across tools and systems when appropriate; data
interoperability and ability to extend Sakai via web services.
SEPARATION OF CONCERNS — maintain clear abstraction
boundaries between tools, services, framework, &
presentation.
July 2009
10th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.
17
Architecture
FRAMEWORK (SAF) — registrar for tools &
services; provider of common services;
no knowledge of domain objects.
SERVICES — provide business logic &
persistence mechanisms; service-toservice communication via documented
APIs; presentation agnostic.
TOOLS — define presentation; exhibit no
persistence; discover implementations
of APIs at run time using Spring
Framework
or
the
Sakai
ComponentManager.
AGGREGATOR/PORTAL — orchestrates tool
placement & configures final UI;
receives & dispatches requests to tools
after setting properties like “context.”

Are usually combined with portfolios for teaching and learning
User reports to aggregate and analyze assessment data and identify representative
artifacts of learning
Examples include portfolios for:
• Assessing institutional outcomes
• Assessing disciplinary outcomes
• Combination of the above

July 2009
10th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A.
Wizards
•
Allow the creation of a series of screens to
"scaffold" users through the process of entering
the data to use in creating portfolios
•
Two types of wizards in OSP:
• Sequential Wizards
• A set of pages presented one after the
other.
• Hierarchical wizards
• A nested tree of categories and pages
•
Wizard pages can include guidance (instructions,
rationale and examples) for the portfolio user
•
Creators of wizards can add forms to wizard pages
to prompt portfolio owners, reviewers and
evaluators to provide
• Evidence and documentation of learning
• Reflections
• Feedback
• Evaluations
July 2009

to wizard pages
Matrices allow:
• Application of styles
• Customization of
• Rows and columns
• For each cell
• Instruction,
rationale,
examples
• Progression
across cell
• Reflection
• Feedback

Reports
•
•
•
•
•
Require use of report templates
(definitions)
Templates specify data to be collected
Data may be displayed, printed, and/or
exported
May be created using
• Sakai Reports tool
• New OSP data warehouse
organization for extracting form data
available Fall 2009
• Integration of Pentajo open source
reporting application with Sakai
• Direct SQL query of OSP data
warehouse tables
Community seeking database experts to
finish structuring XML data in OSP data
warehouse for forms and other data
structures

• Houses global
• Forms
• Glossary items
• Portfolio Layouts
• Styles
• Report templates
(definitions)
July 2009

Challenges to Using OSP
• Functional knowledge of the tools and how they work together
• Takes significant time to understand
• Much of that time will be spent unproductively
• Technical knowledge
• Not every shop understands the XML stack, or how to apply the
knowledge to OSP
• Where the technical knowledge exists, the connection to the pedagogy may
not be there
• Portfolio implementations are much more than tech projects
• Ongoing leadership is essential in sustaining the effort into the future
