It's official

As of May 16, 2006, the University of Twente has officially joined the Sakai Partners Program (SPP). This is serious milestone for us. We are very serious about Sakai and the potential of the community. Joining the SPP is one of our ways of giving back something to the community.
So where do we stand right now? We have started the definition phase of our project, which is called Campus Blend using Sakai (CBUS). We have Sakai up and running for some time now and are evaluating (technical as well as educational) how it compares to our current systems. To document our findings we have started using a Wiki. That works quite nice in my opinion. The wiki is not open to the general public, but sometime it will!
We are planning on starting some pilots with Sakai and/or OSP later this year. There seems to be quite a lot of interest so far from several departments on our campus on utilizing Sakai in their courses, so that seems very promising. We will be delivering some demo's and walkthroughs for those seriously interested in the course of next month, June. Our first official demo will be on June 9.
We will do our final evaluation of Sakai, the toolset, the community and the Sakai framework around May of next year.
We will keep you posted through this weblog. For some more information, in Dutch, you can still go to http://www.utwente.nl/elo.
