Sakai an open source collaboration and learning environment
Sakai - An Open Source Collaboration and Learning Environment

  • A community andfoundation—a group of people and resources supporting the code and each other, realizing large scale Open Source efficiencies

  • A collaboration and learning product with:

    • A set of tools—written and supported by various groups and individuals—which have been tested and released as a unit

  • An extensible framework for building collaboration tyools and services—provides basic capabilities to support a wide range of tools and services—teachingand research

  • An LMS that also supports online research

Putting an OCW Pipeline in the LMS -

OCW Publishing from Sakai

Initial MIT OCW process has difficulty scaling.

How can we support this process?

Ocw tool support for the hybrid process
OCW Tool – Support for the Hybrid Process Environment

  • Support for Tagging in Sakai –

  • Helping faculty, students create tags (metadata) for:

  • IP status – Creative Commons+

  • OCW Navigation – MIT Categories

  • Export – Choose what to put on

  • OCW site

Training

Upstream foundational preparation

All done within LMS faculty are already familiar with

IP Object tracking comes along with the use of the system

Training has additional benefits in educating faculty on IP

Support staff distributed throughout university

  • Recruit faculty

  • Plan TEACHING version of course

  • Plan OCW version of course

  • Review existing content

  • Identify & resolve IP (except permissions)

  • Track IP by object in system


Teaching and managing course materials

Teaching and Managing Course Materials

All done within LMS faculty are already familiar with

IP Object tracking can proceed throughout course

Materials/Objects can be tagged with OCW categories (Syllabus, Lecture Notes, Assignments, etc.) wherever they come from, wiki, blog…

Increasingly, objects tagged by system, eg, Assignments

  • Update and supplement materials

  • Post to email, wikis, blogs, announcements, discussions, forums, IM

  • Assign, track, grade student work

  • Interact (faculty-student and student-student) through all channels above

  • Collect existing content

  • Build content into LMS sections or templates

  • Enter metadata

  • Create commissioned works

  • Process permission requests & make IP edits


Content development and teaching proceed throughout course period

Build Environment

Teach/Manage

Content Development and Teaching Proceed Throughout Course Period

  • Take advantage of that – OCW Tool is available to add tags anytime in development or teaching

  • Capture IP and OCW category metadata as class proceeds, as new material is developed

  • Perhaps have a student ‘scribe’ who has permissions set to add metadata – when new document appears, they tag it – perhaps make this a class activity, develop student incentives (e.g., better future access)

  • Have system flag incomplete data on objects – direct faculty or students to places of needed metadata


Ocw tool educommons
OCW Tool + eduCommons Environment

Publish

QA done within eduCommons by staff – local or central

Faculty receives an email with the URL of the QA’d OCW site, decides whether or not to authorize publishing

If NO, faculty given available support – local or central – supported through eduCommons workflow

If YES, OCW site is published through eduCommons

Open publication

  • Perform course Quality Assurance

  • Obtain faculty approval

  • Export to OCW site

This work very much in progress, thanks to support from Hewlett Foundation, and ongoing efforts from Utah State University and the University of Michigan
