The Sakai LMS is a robust system supporting over 4 million educational users to enhance collaborative teaching, learning and research.
What is Sakai?
Sakai provides a flexible and feature-rich environment for teaching, learning, research and other collaboration. As an open source software suite developed by its adopter community, the Sakai continually evolves in step with the needs of the students, faculty members and organizations it serves.
Colleges, universities, governments and other organizations deploy Sakai’s rich toolset to expand the possibilities for technology-enabled learning across many facets of the educational experience.
Sakai 19 builds on the solid work of the Sakai series, featuring a more polished user interface, improved responsive design for mobile devices, a new Commons tool for social messaging, performance enhancements in Assignments and Gradebook, extended delivery of assessments for select individuals and groups in Tests & Quizzes, new menu options and content widgets in Lessons and much more!
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to everyone involved with developing, testing, and documenting the latest release. Even during a pandemic, our world-wide community has kept the momentum going and produced another Sakai release packed with exciting new features and enhancements. That is a tremendous accomplishment during these unprecedented times!
