Sakai comes pre-bundled with various tools applicable to an e-Learning context. There is a threaded discussion tool, chat room tool and file sharing tools, including a tool designed to allow students to upload files for the worksite administrator's eyes only (the drop box tool). Most of Sakai's out of the box functionality is, in fact, geared towards e-Learning, as is the user interface model of worksites and tools.
