Jianwei Li, Visiting Scholar

Sakai provides us with the flexibility we need to offer a learning management system to support the teaching methodology at the College of Network Education for Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications since 2008. Nowadays, there are more than forty thousand students studying in Sakai. We design instructor-guide online learning models and we have successfully developed quiz infrastructure for management, video management, SCORM courseware management and playback based on the Sakai framework.

This presentation is composed of four parts:
