The contest to Name Brock's Sakai-based System's Results
Congratulations to Rob Goldberg for suggesting the winning name! Rob came up with the name by rearranging the letters used to spell Sakai in Isaak. This name references both Brock University's namesake, Sir. Isaac Brock, and the Sakai Learning Management System that Brock's LMS is based on.

As part of the introduction of Sakai to Brock University a naming contest was held. The intent was to separate the service offered by a Learning Management System at Brock University from the product name, in this case the Sakai Project's Sakai CLE.
Isaak was chosen from 454 suggested names.
There will be only one winner. If similar names are submitted by different individuals the person that submitted the name first will be selected. Enter as often as you would like. Contest will end during 2008.
