Meeting minutes for March 9, 2009

  1. Sakai/OSP 2.6 Issues and Status
  2. Sakai/OSP 2.7 and beyond Development Status

Peter Knoop will do another demo of Sakai 3.0 at 3pm Wed. 11th. People should rsvp to Peter.

Towards the goal of identifying the things that OSP does that we want preserved and extended in 3.0, Jan listed seven thing that we do (Select, Reflect,Tag, Associate, Evaluate, Share, Report) on the Vignettes page. The group added the word Guide as the first item on the list. The question arose whether the term Tag covers defining a controlled vocabulary for outcomes/goals with associated rubrics and the like (Structuring of goal sets). Tag v. Associate: both have to do with drawing connections between your object and a concept. Free tagging is going to be done for 3.0, but we'll have to contribute to get controlled vocabularies/goal management. There are things that will be built by the Sakai community, and things we'll need to add. Vignettes page was modified to have two new columns, one for what the Sakai community is likely to contribute anyway, and the second for input we need to have. David Goodrum's post is a good model for us for speaking to the larger community. Flow (workflow) was added as the last category. Clay Fenlason has done a lot of work relevant to workflow. We should define the user experience we'd like users to have (learners and mentors)

Three Canoes offering to give a full-day intro to OSP. But Teaching and Learning doesn't want us to conflict with their half day. Should they keep full day, or just do 1/2 day to not conflict. Maybe if 3C published an agenda, and then did the more technical stuff during T&L session, it wouldn't be a bad conflict.
