Abstract/Artist Statement

The goal of our project is to create a learning management system based on University of the Pacific’s current system, Sakai. Although similar websites already exist, few take into consideration the needs of modern education. The driving force behind this project is frustration caused by limitations of Sakai and unnecessary complexities in using its features. In our learning management system, we plan on including features to enable student interactivity, such as uploading notes as a student and the ability to chat amongst classmates, rather than strictly email communication. We also hope to have a more organized system to upload and find teachers’ notes, more straightforward relations between elements of the classroom and website structure (such as name of the class), and generally improved ways for teachers to interact with their students.
