Overall Satisfaction with Sakai

We used Sakai as the primary LMS for the college for eLearning students to take online classes.
  • Separates each type of learning into intuitive areas
  • Allows for flexibility with integrating other systems
  • Easy to set up basic courses
  • When I used the system a few years ago, there were several small bugs. Most of them we were able to work around, but they were annoying.
  • Again, when I used the system a few years ago, it would have been nice to have an easier way to implement attractive templates.
  • Very positive. The eLearning department grew exponentially during our course of using Sakai.
Sakai and Moodle seem to be neck and neck. I much prefer a proper LMS over a WordPress LMS Plugin. Sakai was much more robust than a simple plugin solution.
Well suited for online learning where instructional developers are present to assist instructors. Less appropriate for instructors to develop on their own without technical assistance from instructional developers.
