Mount Kenya University (MKU) is not left out, the University has employed technologies to ensure that distance learning becomes a reality for students. These technologies form the Distance learning portal, the features they provide include:
Communication and Collaboration – Robust communication options and group-aware tools make keeping in touch and working together easier.
Grading and Assessment – State of the art grading and assessment features make Sakai a great choice for collecting student submissions and providing rich feedback on their work. (see: Can I download my lost KCSE certificate online?)
Content Development and Delivery – Building your course has never been easier! Sakai lets you create and organize text, resources, quizzes, tests, assignments, links, video, and other media into lessons or modules; control access to materials via conditional release; upload, store, and share files and other resources; and much more.
Course and System Management – Powerful course and system administration features give you the tools to manage courses and users effectively and efficiently.
Community Contributed Tools – Take advantage of open source, Sakai-specific tools developed by community members and then released for others to use outside of the packaged Sakai release.
External App Integrations – Sakai is a leader in the development and implementation of the IMS LTI specification. In addition, Sakai has an extensive API which facilitates the development of deep, native integrations with third party applications.
