Contacted Jen to get details about moving the code to git. Seems involved. How do people feel about the current code going in with no history? The history will be in our local SVN but it probably isn't much use to anyone.

INC-35ThinkSpace tim carroll Pete Boysen
  • Upcoming a 4 hour "visioning meeting" for Thinkspace to discuss ThinkSpace2.0 with faculty.  This would be a major redesign of the interface to improve ease of use and functionality.  I am hopeful this will be an App-structured interface (apps might include Assignments, Announcements, etc.) rather than the typical website-oriented structure we have now and present in most LMSes.  An app-structured would be easier to use and could provide better integration with LMSes and portals.
  • 20 students in an HCI course are studying ThinkSpace for the semester using UX principles to define audience, functionality, market etc. These students are from around the country and many are professionals.
  • Two grants have been submitted to NSF: one to run the CIRTL network with hopes of integrating features of ThinkSpace into their network ($3.5M).  The other is a "CyberLearning: Transforming Education" grant to advance the feedback and peer-review options of ThinkSpace  ($1.6M).
  • They have hired a part-time programmer to assist in development of new functionality for the HTML Editor (CKEditor which is also used in SAKAI).
  • They now have an official website: www.thinkspace.org (Note the reference to JASIG)

INC-16Search Portlet Tuyhang Ly Jennifer Bourey

Jen wants to drop this.  Susan asked on lists for opinions on this, here are some responses:

  • Paul Gazda said "General web searching is now easily accessible in most browsers, so the Google search would not be a useful addition at this time"
  • Jen believes that "the search API is also becoming paid-only, further reducing its usefulness".

INC-37Scheduling Assistant Tuyhang Ly Nicholas BlairSusan asked on lists whether there are any adopters, but no response so far.  Maybe RPI.
INC-41People Soft HR Integration Portlets Tuyhang Ly Eric DalquistNot much progress.  Reached out to Eric for updates.  Source codes have not been committed yet.
