While Notre Dame has been a part of the Sakai community since 2011, Sakai 11 marks the first time Notre Dame has been involved in preparing a release. A rich collaboration with Duke allowed us to identify and address priority issues. With New York University and others, we’ve contributed to the development of a new Gradebook tool for easier and faster grading capabilities. Sakai 11, being deployed at Notre Dame in August, is a stepping stone toward a next generation digital learning environment (NGDLE). Notre Dame is proud to be part of a community leading consistent implementation of IMS global interoperability standards, the crux of the next generation digital learning environment.
