  • Citation Manager Widget The project is to select an API for the citation database(like the webAPI for connotea etc.,)with the help of my mentor to be integrated into Sakai3 and to integrate it and to develop a Citation Manager widget for Sakai3.
  • Gsoc Application for Event Explorer project for Sakai Help-Desk Users Creation of back-end extension to collect and persist Sakai messages in a database, a layer and mechanism for analysis of persisted data, and a front-end UI for accessing and displaying the data from database in a structured manner.
  • Sakai and Androd: e-learning and technology Mobility is a major issue nowadays, and android is a great platform to bring sakai 3 to mobile. Android is an open source operating system for mobile device which has the support of Google, and every day the is more mobile phones and more students using it. This is just an idea, but I think that would be nice to be able to sync all our events from sakai (like: new assignments, new tests, dead lines...) alert us and let check them.
