Even though we have release notes , I was wondering if it would be helpful to make a blog post about our maintenance releases. Also motivated by the fact that in 11.2 we had to turn off one of the new features of Sakai 11 for the mobile view, and thought that would be important to communicate. This blog post is really about both Sakai 11.1 and Sakai 11.2 since combined there are 350 improvements since the 11.0 release on 23 July 2016.
We are pleased to announce a SakaiCamp un-conference in Orlando Florida January 21 - 25, 2017.
SakaiCamp is an informal gathering that is focused solely on Sakai. The people who show up decide on the topics of discussion, and in some cases, working sessions. Attending we get a nice mix of developers, instructional designers, managers, etc. And we have break out sessions so that developers can talk tech and users can talk function. And we all come together in full group debriefs and discussions.
The University of Virginia has released a short promotional video highlighting the power and potential available in its instance of Sakai, as well as the role of its instance in expanding the university’s mission into the digital world.
We are so happy to share with the community that the University of Murcia's Sakai instance was upgraded to Sakai 11.1 on September 15th, 2016.
Sakai 11 has had a facelift! The new version of Sakai supports a responsive design meaning that it can be used on any device with any screen size, any place, anytime, anywhere! The new release represents one of the biggest, if not the biggest, improvement in Sakai in years. Sakai 11 is, of course, still 100% open source and its redesign was informed by UX testing with real users and delivered by the worldwide Sakai community.
