I'd like to close this post with two statements:
- Sakai and Sharepoint are not two interchangeable options. The products can complement each other, rather than subsitute the other.
- Sharepoint seems to relate closer to the current daily practice of publishing powerpoint slides and PDF-readers (as is done in current VLE's) which makes it an attractive alternative for e.g. Blackboard. In my opinion this will hinder true pedagogical innovation.
