Open Apereo 2016

The Apereo Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of NYU in organizing the Open Apereo 2016 conference.

The Open Apereo Conference is designed to be an international, inclusive event, providing opportunities for community members to:

  • Present perspectives based on institutional experience, access the experience of others, exchange ideas, develop dialogue and form new partnerships.
  • Develop an understanding of other areas of the academic enterprise by looking outside of immediate interest areas and contributing to the understanding of commonalities as well as contrasts.
  • Organize community-wide, project-based, or institutional discussion, dialogue and practical collaborative work.

Apereo is a network of institutions like yours. We support software used in thousands of educational institutions worldwide. Software developed and maintained by the Apereo Community includes:

Sakai, the premier collaboration and learning environment

CAS, one of the most popular single-sign on/authentication mechanisms, designed by higher education for higher education

uPortal and uMobile, longstanding portal framework featuring responsive design and mobile solutions

Open Academic Environment, cloud-based academic collaboration platform

Bedework, calendaring solution for higher education

Student Success Plan, supports early intervention for student retention based on a decade of R&D

Opencast, lecture capture and academic media services platform

UniTime, timetabling and scheduling system for higher education

Xerte, authoring environment for interactive and accessible learning materials

We're also the place higher education software projects, new or ongoing, can find help, support and sustenance.

Our incubation process  supports new projects as they find the path from innovation to sustainability,
with communities developing around products such as EDexchange, a transcript exchange solution, and Karuta, a next generation ePortfolio initiative. Most recently, components of an open learning analytics platform have entered our incubation process.

Elements of our Open Analytics Platform - the result of our Open Analytics Initiative  - were recently selected as key components of the UK national analytics infrastructure provided by the Jisc.

Apereo is a global network, with member institutions on six continents. We seek to actively develop partnerships to further our mission of creating and sustaining software supporting learning, teaching and research. Our partnership with our sister organisation, the ESUP-Portail consortium in France, creates a network of over 180 higher educational institutions and partners. It’s a network where you can share experiences, learn from the experiences of others, and discover new collaborators.

Mark you calendars and join us this year to share your success stories at our Open Apereo 2016
conference in New York City!
