As a reminder, we will be holding our weekly Teaching and Learning call
today in about an hour, 2 PM Eastern Time (New York). Dial-in information
and a link to our etherpad for note taking is at:
Since we did not have time on the call last week to discuss in any detail
very early thoughts around a longer-term vision for Sakai, I'd like to
suggest that we spend time on this topic today. To provide an initial
jumping off place for this conversation, I am including a VERY EARLY DRAFT
of some of the ideas that I have been pondering. I want to stress that
these are my own personal ideas and don't reflect any else. I should also
note that in putting this together I decided to look to the Learning
Design Lenses that were developed in 2010 see to what extent they meant
sense to incorporate. If you need a reference for the Design Lenses you

Outside of this topic, a number of people have asked me to do a demo of
OAE and some of the pilots we've been running at Marist and I'd like to
see if we can identify a call when it make sense to do this so I can get
it on my schedule.
Of course, feel free to bring other agenda items or ideas to the call.
