  18. 18. Practice : level 1 • Resources • Ask more than storage of documents • Control yourself their use/date of availability… • Problems when hiding • Communications 1. Mail/announcements… 2. Chat, forum: seldom used except for distance learning • Pedagogical path: Melete •. A fundamental tool but poorly integrated into Sakai •. Need for a more sophisticated one
  19. 19. Practice: level 2 • Tests and quizzes • Use of various templates • Problems for final exams • A very appreciated tool • Assignments • A very popular tool • Drop box (sometimes instead of assignments!) • Calendar
  20. 20. Practice: level 3 • More sophisticated tests • Gradebook • Podcast: problem to control space for users • Wiki, blog? • Web pages… • ….
