Sakai Usage Observations
... or why we don't use the Sakai VRE for our own work.
Personal notes only - no official status - work in progress
1. Usability issues
Sakai breaks the browser "back" button. When viewing a message in a mailing list archive, normal web behaviour would be for the "back" button to return to the list of messages. This is not what happens. (e.g., at http://collab.sakaiproject.org/portal/site/1103227538796-57571, click on a message to view it, then click on the browser's "back" button.)
- It's worse than that! Although Sakai maintains archives of email discussion lists, those archives are accessible *only* via the portal, and there appears to be no way to link to a specific email message. How lame is that!
