Sakai is an online collaboration and learning environment, which is used by worldwide education institutes, especially for the universities and colleges. Compared with foreign countries, the current level of development and application of Sakai system in China is not mature and extensive. More correlative study and practical applications on Sakai are needed. Sakai is used by some selected teachers and curriculums of Henan Polytechnic University in the first term of 2013 on trial. And in 2014, Sakai is conducted a comprehensive promotion in the whole University. Discussions of the application of Sakai in the University are included in the paper. The implement process of Sakai in the University is presented first. Then some experience and advices on the application of Sakai on university of science and engineering in China are discussed.
