Sakai 3 Visual Style


As part of the the Sakai 3 project (I should say, the 3akai R&D project that we intend to form the basis of Sakai 3) and the overall UX initiative, the Sakai Foundation, University of Cambridge and Georgia Tech recently engaged a User Experience Design Consultancy in the UK create a visual design.  The Sakai wiki contains a description of the process and the initial results, but here’s a quick screen shot of the dashboard:

I’m personally very pleased with the direction this is heading and is an important step on the path towards delivering Sakai 3. Please take a look and let us know what you think.  I hope to be demonstrating this “in action” at the 10th Sakai Conference in Boston, which is now less than 2 weeks away!

  1. Looks like money well spent. Great design!

  2. Very impressive, I’m soooo glad you have chosen to invest in this at a relatively early stage and set an example with a very high standard: extremely important.

    This is what people see and work with … if it doesn’t look good and interact intuitively, no matter how powerful they may know the software is intellectually, it’ll just be ‘that geeky thing we use at work’.

    Glad this is being done.
