Sakai is 100% open source. Sakai community members develop Sakai-specific tools and then release them for others to use outside of the packaged Sakai release. You can even build your own if you like!

Building your course has never been easier! Sakai lets you create and organize text, resources, quizzes, tests, assignments, links, video, and other media into lessons or modules; control access to materials via conditional release; upload, store, and share files and other resources; and much more.


The Secret to Sakai's Leadership:
Our Open-Source Community

Sakai is 100% Open-Source, so you never have to worry that it will be acquired and altered.


The community oversees, directs, manages, and advances Sakai together.

Commercial affiliates develop, host, and support Sakai. Longsight, Learning Experiences, EDF, and Unicon are the
main affiliates.
