Surveying exercise is a fundamental course for Civil Engineering students. This course is featured with field operation. This study explores the design of an e-learning platform for the surveying exercise course. The issues on organizing digital contents such as recorded video of the standard instrument operation, editing learning materials, and constructing the portfolio for the learning process, as well as generating learning motivation, are discussed. Noting the uploaded videos, publishing articles and commentaries, interactive examination sessions, assessing for each other, and mobile device accessing, are found to be useful elements for this platform.
