In this paper, a web-based course management system is introduced which allows teachers to manage course-related affairs such as, course announcement grade processing, and learning status of each student. The system also facilitates communication between teacher and student, and provides real time learning feedback messages in a real-time manner which allows students to check their own learning status and make necessary adjustments. At the end of the course, both students and teacher can pack their own portfolio files which contain score trends, lecturing content the course syllabus, discussion content, collected files, homework, self assessment, and teacher's comment. The system completely records every detail related to student's learning, then packs these details in an organized structure. Students may then carry their own portfolios to the next learning stage. This is the optimal way to evaluate student's learning progress and level. In order to improve accountability and reliability of portfolio files, this system adopts MD5 to construct an online verification mechanism.
