What is Sakai?

3:28 p.m., March 20, 2008--Sakai is a collection of open source tools developed by a large number of universities to provide a supplementary learning environment suitable for on-campus courses and distance learning courses.

According to the Sakai Project's Web site, “Sakai is a free and open source product that is built and maintained by the Sakai community. Sakai's development model is called 'Community Source' because many of the developers creating Sakai are drawn from the 'community' of organizations that have adopted and are using Sakai.”
