[CSG Fall 2005] Twin Peaks Navigator


Brad Wheeler from Indiana is talking about the Twin Peaks Navigator which is intended to connect course management systems with repository content.

One of the issues this hopes to solve is the issue of students having to buy course packs containing photocopies of data the institution already has online.

They wanted to be able to store pointers to all sorts of digital content, even if it’s in a protected source such as a library database.

The idea is for a faculty member to be able to easily embed links to data sources within the online course content. In the implementation there’s a button that invokes a library search within the WYSIWYG editor. Very cool!


The hope is to have this integrated into the next version of Sakai.
