In 2008, Charles Sturt University (CSU) introduced CSU Interact, a learning management system (LMS) based on the Sakai framework, a worldwide collection of higher education institutions using the community source model of software development. In addition to its basic function (providing staff and students an online collaborative teaching and learning environment, and supporting research and project activities) CSU Interact allows for integrated approaches to learning technologies within the CSU environment. The LMS has given the staff an opportunity to develop new teaching strategies, including integrating online tools, from blogs for online journaling, to wikis for collaborative writing, to chat rooms for synchronous communication.
