Release of Sakai Open Academic Environment (OAE) version 1.0

Reposted from ACODE

You might be interested to know that the Sakai Open Academic Environment (OAE) version 1.0 has been released recently. Release information is available at http://sakaiproject.org/node/2307. A brief demo is available at http://www.youtube.com/user/nyuatlas

Sakai OAE can be used in hybrid with Sakai CLE (the 2.x series) to provide an excellent learning and teaching experience beyond that of the traditional LMS.

Please see the design coals and the learning and teaching capabilities it addresses at https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/3AK/Design+Goals (more information at https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/PED/Sakai+Learning+Capabilities+v+1.0)
Version 1.1 (due by the end of the year) will provide a full Widget Software Development Kit (SDK) to enable easy third party development… widgets are, however, already being developed by universities linked to the project!

Major work is already underway in the second year of the project to increase the functionally and capabilities towards version 2.0 (June 2012).
