  1. We have just started! On forming a Sakai Special Interest Group NLSeptember 7, 20061st European Sakai Dayincluding results of feedback of participantsWytze Koopalhttp://elearning.surf.nl/sakaihttp://sakai-nl.blogspot.com

  2. Agenda • Some facts and figures from NL • Some (personal) viewpoints • Some context • Sakai SIG NL • (Some) Discussion • What’s next?

  3. Dutch facts and figures • VLE in primary and secondary education: very fragmented market • Higher Ed: large market share of Blackboard (~ 50 %), plus local players • HE: Total of ~60 institutions, 500 k students • Within HE: some 3-5 institutions that are evaluating Sakai • Some commercial interests in Sakai…

  4. Sakai at our institutions • Amsterdam (University of Amsterdam and VU) • University of Twente • Utrecht • Rotterdam • Saxion • Stoas & Hotelschool The Hague • Leidse OnderwijsInstellingen (LOI) • 3TU: TU Delft & TU Eindhoven

  5. Some viewpoints - 1 • There is a lot of discussion in NL about VLE’s recently etc • But: there is lack of information regarding • open source / open standards, and • how to move forward • how to collaborate (really!) • Although: 80% of our (administrative) processes are the same….[mainly based on thorough legislation] • But: we are ‘direct’ competitors in certain ways

  6. Some viewpoints - 2 • ICT in Education: NL HE sector is very well organized; thanks to SURF (http://www.surf.nl/en) • SURF is really active on the forefront of innovation, for example: • NL standards community (http://elearning.surf.nl/six) • E-framework • Studielink (http://www.studielink.nl) • Elearning research programme (http://www.surf.nl/elr) • NL portfolio community (http://elearning.surf.nl/portfolio) • Sakai community (http://elearning.surf.nl/sakai)

  7. Some context • More and more interaction (quite recent) between SIS and VLE ‘specialists’ • SURF has formed Sakai SIG NL (more on this in a minute) • SURF is more and more involved in e-framework (close collaboration with JISC) • Almost no fuzz (or ‘spin’) regarding Blackboard patent in NL

  8. What is Sakai SIG NL? • Informal, virtual community, started in July 2006 • Coordinator (1 day/week, this is me) • Work plan: communication, communication, exchange of experiences • Website / weblog: just to inform those that do not know (yet) • Just getting started: focus of different member institutions of different subjects

  9. 1st results Sakai SIG NL • There is more to Sakai than programming! There is • QA (UvA) • General requirements for tools (Resources, • Requirements for OSP • European (Dutch) requirements: Bologna, Lisbon (see Portier, Koch & Oldsjö) • Localization & Internationalization (I18N & L10N) • …

  10. Challenges Sakai SIG NL • Lurking… ?! • Them (US) and we: there is no they! • Lack of knowledge of Open Source/Access/Standards • Not invented here • Is there a longterm leadership commitment on institutional level?: relationship with strategic plans of our institution

  11. Discussion • Take a look at http://www.sakai-pilot.utwente.nl/sakaiwiki/european_dutch_enhancements (also on handouts) • Divide in 4 or 5 groups • Ask yourself (and take 5 minutes): • What’s missing on this list? I need at least one item from every group  • What should have high priority? Only 3 please  • Are you willing and able to work on it? • Who will (wants to) be ‘owner’ of this list (or a subset) ?

  12. Result: What is missing on the list? • Regarding the Dutch community: we need a sort of roadmap (what are reasons that will result in management buyin) • Migration support (how to migrate from current VLE to Sakai): technical stuff, but also user support materials • Regarding issue of surnames: first collate use cases (might not be the same all over Europe) and then write down requirements.

  13. Result: What should have priority? • Item #6 (international date and time formats): 7 votes.

  14. Result: What is not an issue (any more)? • There is a patch for #6 (date and time format) • # 9: (sort of) you can use webservices to overcome problem; this is a hack • #12: seems to be solved in Version 2.2 • # 5: is actually a localization issue

  15. What’s next • Check out: • http://sakai-nl.blogspot.com • http://elearning.surf.nl/sakai • Wiki: http://bugs.sakaiproject.org/confluence/display/EUROSAKAI/Home • Collab: DG: Euro Sakai • Let’s talk: leave your business card / email address
