Full Abstract

Profile2 is a complete re-design and re-development of the existing Profile tool in Sakai. It gives you a rich interface for managing your profile. In addition, you have a comprehensive set of Privacy controls to manage who can see what parts of your profile. With Profile2 you can post updates (integrated with Twitter), search for people with common interests, view their profiles, view their connections, add them as a connection, and much more. In this presentation we'll explore these features and take a look at the new developments taking place, including including a Kudos rating system, Photo Galleries, Private Messaging and Chat. Profile2 can be run seamlessly alongside the existing profile in Sakai to allow you to evaluate both profile tools. If you've never used the profile tool in Sakai before, now is the time to start. Profile2 will be shipping as the default profile tool in Sakai 2.7.
