Sakai 11 update as of 29 Feb 2016.
The Sakai Project is a robust LMS 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.
The current Sakai release is Sakai 12.
Sakai 12 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!
