Learning analytics is at a critical juncture in its lifecycle. To date, much of the learning analytics-related research, software development, and standards work that exists has taken place in relative isolation. This lack of collaboration, openness, and integrated systems greatly limits the potential of learning analytics.

Sakai Wiki Future - 4th February 2015
Our existing Sakai wiki is aging, no longer seems to meet the functional needs of the community, and is not technically sustainable.

Introducing UniTime - December 2014
UniTime is a comprehensive educational scheduling system that supports developing course and exam timetables, managing changes to these timetables, sharing rooms with other events, and scheduling students to individual classes. It is a distributed system that allows multiple university and departmental schedule managers to coordinate efforts to build and modify a schedule that meets their diverse organizational needs while allowing for minimization of student course conflicts. It can be used alone to create and maintain a school's schedule of classes and/or exams, or interfaced with an existing student information system.
