Monthly Sakai Showcase

Upcoming Monthly Mighty Project Site Group Showcases

Ever wish you could see and explore what other institutions are doing with Sakai? Do you feel you may be using project sites in a unique way and wondering who else out there may be doing the same? The Mighty Project Site group exists for these very reasons!
This group originated as a result of a session at 2014’s Sakai Virtual Conference, and has been meeting monthly ever since. This collaborative and supportive group includes teaching faculty, educational technologists, and IT personnel, which spans back-end/administrator, front-end/trainer, and teacher expertise with Sakai. Our mission is to work towards benchmarking standards of use of project sites in Sakai through collaboration and showcasing of our institutions’ instances of Sakai.

Our upcoming monthly meetings will be a series of Sakai showcases, during which the presenter will highlight a variety of aspects about their instance, such as use of course vs. project sites, common tools, roles/permissions, general support challenges, site host, site creation policies, etc.
If you want to see what other institutions are doing, then don’t miss out!
