Roger Henry: With Sakai 3, it's time for students to be a recognized constituency, like faculty and instructional designers. Active groups include portfolio users, code-monkeys/hackers(\!), student organizations and committees, research groups. What is the best way to seek their input? 1) Another core constituency with a conference track. 2) Incorporation via their interests into existing groups and tracks. And how do we get students to conferences? Cut or forgo registration fee, lower hotel charge, make awards... Can something be done for Sakai 2011?
Robin: Student participation difficult to obtain. \
- average student does not have a lot of well-formed ideas for the design of course platforms
Lynn: Seek advice from Sakai 3 project. \
-\- Design lenses folks interested in practical next steps for develping Sakai3 \
-\- Current and future work will require extensive interraction with students. \
-\- We would have to have willing professionals who would serve as mentors (GREAT IDEA). \
-\- Student engagement might come first, leading to the natural development of a track \
-\- How much can we undertake.
Roger: Perhaps students who use Sakai for collaboration and project work can tell us what they need for course purposes and other types of collaborative activity not associated with courses.
kim: Try terms used by other conferences to attract students.
