I’ve been wondering how Sakai fares among professional schools in the USA, so as a first experiment, I grabbed the top 25 business schools in 2009 as per US News & World Report and did some research.
Given how business schools have the reputation of hewing to proprietary systems and going their own way, I was surprised by Sakai’s strong showing. 3 of the the top 10 business schools use Sakai as their primary online learning system. At least 6 out of the top 25 schools either already use Sakai as their primary system or soon will. I also know that at least 9 other schools in this list are either actively investigating Sakai or have some impetus to adopt Sakai.
I’m still collecting information from a couple of campuses and I welcome your comments. If you know the priamry online learning system for any of the schools not accounted for yet here, leave a comment below or contact me and I’ll update the list.
