Sakai Docs ride along - Learn about creating Sakai Online Help documentation September 8th, 10am Eastern
Sakai is a virtual community and we often meet online through email, and in real time through the Apereo Slack channel and web conferences. We have so many meetings that we need a Sakai calendar to keep track of our meetings.
Read about our upcoming get togethers!
We are finally here! A big milestone has been reached with the branching of Sakai 12.0. What is a "branch"? A branch means we've taken a snapshot in time of Sakai and put it to the side so we improve it, mostly QA (quality assurance testing) and bug fixing until we feel it is ready to release to the world and become a community supported release. We have a stretch goal from this point of releasing before the end of this year, 2017.

In the last few years, Sakai’s user interface and user experience has improved significantly. The community’s effort to make Sakai a responsive and easy-to-use application is evident in the latest release. Improved navigation, streamlined workflows, and a modern interface are all noticeable improvements in Sakai 11. Yet, these improvements have not been documented in a style guide for Sakai.
To address this gap, Duke University is partnering with the Sakai Community to develop an updated style guide for Sakai.

Thursday, May 18 2017 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
Sakai should have a positive impact on all who encounter it, a key part of this goal is how accessible Sakai is.
Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) and part of GAAD is building awareness of what we all can do to promote access for, and inclusion of, people with different abilities.
Sakai has a good history of accessibility but recent versions of Sakai have not been released with a thorough review of the accessibility and to what degree it meets recognized international standard like the WCAG 2. I’m pleased to share that thanks to community efforts in fundraising over $61,000 and 60 hours of development work Sakai’s accessibility has been reviewed by a recognized accessibility reviewer, SSB Bart, and our plans are to deliver Sakai 12 with an accessibility compliance statement.
