Sakai Open Academic Environment (OAE) 1.3.0 release

RELEASE DATE: 1 June 2012

The Sakai Community is pleased to announce the release of the Sakai OAE version 1.3.0.

Sakai OAE is an open-source platform that promotes collaboration and sharing between users and interoperability between systems. It embraces a new vision for academic collaboration informed by the needs of learners, teachers and researchers.  OAE provides academic networking capabilities that encourage people to connect and participate in communities that span beyond the traditional boundaries of classroom and institution. Powerful content authoring capabilities permit mash-ups and remixable experiences of ideas, dialog and media. Enhanced search capabilities aid discovery of people and content. A widget-based architecture simplifies both development and integration with external systems.


OAE 1.3.0 introduces the following new features:

  • A new permission option for Sakai OAE documents is now available. People can be invited to edit without surrendering ownership and the power to delete. Ideal for participatory learning environments or collaboration between colleagues.
  • A new configuration setting is now available that allows institutions to configure who is allowed to share content in the system, based on the visibility setting of the content
  • A password strength indicator has been added to the Sign Up page
  • Improved indicators of read/unread status of messages in mailboxes
  • We've added an extension to the Sakai Basic LTI consumer/provider and provided a set of default skins for designated Sakai CLE tools such as assignments, gradebook and Tests & Quizzes.
  • we also fixed some bugs, see https://jira.sakaiproject.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?mode=hide&requestId=13236
