Abstract

There has been a tremendous growth and coverage of the Internet in recent years. The popularity of the Internet brings positive effects to the development of web-based education platforms as they are convenient and flexible for both learners and educators. However, many popular educational platforms have limitations such materials sharing and re-usability. This paper reports on a newly developed web-based education platform, called Pilot (Promoting Interactive Learning in an Online environmenT), which emphasizes teaching materials synchronizing, sharing and reusing. The video/slide synchronization function helps the learners to acquire knowledge actively and efficiently and the reusability function helps creators to prepare presentations in a convenient and simple way. A pilot run was conducted in March and the feedback was encouraging.
