Bit late but wanted to remind everyone of our regular weekly call that
will be starting up shortly at 2 PM Eastern Time. Dial-in information and
a link to our Etherpad for notetaking is at:
In terms of the call agenda for today, I'd like to briefly update the
group on the Lessons Enhancement Project which continues to move forward
in terms of initial planning and then also touch on some logistics around
call times based on feedback from folks at Oxford who have expressed
interested in participating. The other topic that we discussed briefly
last week but folks seemed interested in talking more about is the "Future
of the LMS" so I'd suggest we have a general discussion on this unless
other agenda items get recommended (please bring them to the call).
With Chuck's webinar he is doing with Longsight on the "Future of Sakai"
starting at 3 PM Eastern (details on that below in case you missed the
note from Wilma) I'd suggest that we plan to conclude the call a few
minutes early so folks can got to the webinar if you're interested.
Please join us for this month's Sakai Showcase Webinar! Registration is
free and open to the public. We encourage you to forward this invitation
to colleagues who may also be interested in attending.
"The Future of Sakai" on Jun 25, 2014 3:00-4:00PM EDT (12:00-1:00PM PDT)
