Dec 11, 2005 : Higher Ed and open source / community source

There are some great Open (or Community) Source projects for higher education that are under-linked. I only found out about these by word-of-mouth or the digital equivalent.

  • JA-SIG currently sponsors 3 projects
    • uPortal is designed particularly for use in education. Supports "channels" and JSR-168 portlets
    • CAS Central Authentication Service lets you have one single sign-on service for all your enterprise applications; CAS can be connected to many many types of authenticators (ldap, sql, jaas, etc)
    • HyperContent does website content authoring & publishing
  • Kuali is a Financial Information System
  • Bedework does institutional calendaring
  • Sakai is a Learning Management System
  • University of British Columbia has started talking about a community-source Student Information System
  • University of Indiana has a "OneStart Workflow" that soon will make its first release. It lets developers route documents (e.g. for approvals) around an organization based on business processes. It'll be used as part of Kuali

: Lots of Software Engineering readings

MIT's 16.355 Software Engineering Concepts has quite a few readings & notes. And they look quite good too. I wonder if I'll ever come back to the site and read them...
