Elluminate, Inc., a leading provider of live eLearning and Web collaboration solutions for the real-time organization, and Unicon, the leading independent provider of open-source enterprise portal, collaboration, learning and integration technology for higher education institutions, today announced a partnership. The two companies will collaborate to deliver a joint product and service offering for the Sakai Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) for academic institutions at the K-12, community college and higher education levels.
The Sakai Project is a community-source effort to develop a platform for teaching, learning, collaboration and research that began in 2004 as a collaborative effort between Berkley, Indiana University, MIT, Stanford and the University of Michigan. An alternative to proprietary or homegrown course management solutions, Sakai combines an application framework with a wide variety of associated CMS tools and components that are designed to work together.
