Ira Fuchs at the Sakai Conference

Ira Fuchs made the closing keynote at Sakai today and gave a great list of open source software that he saw as potentially revolutionizing higher education. I list those (with a few others we talked about at dinner last) here: Sakai, Kuali, Open Source Portfolio Initiative, eduCommons, Asterisk, Zimbra, OJAX.

Ira’s talk set out a really fabulous vision of open source software use in higher education, built around his vision of EduCore (he stressed this is the working title only). The best part of his speech was the announcement that beginning immediately a three month study is being conducted to take the EduCore idea several steps closer to becoming a reality.
