Post details: Higher Ed and open source / community source

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

CAS and shibbooeth mya be roled into one, i haven't quite figurred out their plans.
