- Welcome and Introductions

- Today's topics:
Sites: a collection of pages; doesn't include all the extra functional pieces that were baked in to Sakai 2 sites; goal is to free up the site to be authored and shared like other pieces of content.
Interactive content: discussion thread; a poll; functionality wthin a page that accepts and stores user input.
What happens when you share a page with interactive content across multiple groups?
Josh: in some cases, there would be need tp retain the group contributions or just the skeleton.
Debbie: permissions; if someone controbutes to the interactive portion or widget on a page, does the contributor have the ability to limit who can see it.
Janice: need to think through all situations in which sites and groups are related to one another.
Clay: individuals are to a group as pages are to a site; groups and sites are the molectular structures made up of these atomic elements
Clay: a single group can now how many sites. For example a course, could have multiple sites. A single course might have many course packs. Discrete chunks of content that focus on a particular purpose or topic.
Lynn: a page can be part of multiple sites. the site is the glue (book metaphor).
Daphne: flexibility is going to be key; important to build in support/scaffolding to help user figure out how to work in new ways.
Clay: not everyone wants a full site and the administrative overhead that goes along with it. Simplest experience is simpler than Sakai 2. User has control over the complexity level.
Josh: many use cases in which we present instructors with fairly traditional looking course sites.
Clay: at first pass, embedded widgets are empty at first.
Josh: Outside of LMS, are there other examples where interactive content is reused in other contexts.
Clay: Might be reasonable to say that the interactive cannot be reused. Masking identities, but keeping the content; a blank template each time its reused
Josh: general direction of decoupling groups from sites; making some initial decisions about how sharing and re-use is handled; and then fine tuning as we gain a better understanding of needs
Josh: there's a difference between the remixing and redistribution of content and the concurrent use of pages/content in multiple groups/contexts.
- How do you associate a site with a group and make that experience friendly.
- Since pages can have embedded functionality intended for a particular context, what does it mean when you share it with a particular context.
- Reuse is where things seem to get tricky. Will need to decide how much we want/can support.
Interactive content (where people are connected with the interactions):
- Discussion thread
- Comments on a page
- Embedded assignment or assessment
