Learning Management System


The SAI Learning Management System (LMS), known as the eCampus, allows for our Permaculture Students to have an immersive learning experience, with a guided Permaculture Design educational journey facilitated by our custom-built platform. The e-Campus platform affords SAI students with a world-class portal to learn all about Sustainability and Permaculture Design.

Learning: because SAI uses it to deliver Sustainability and Permaculture Design education courses to our students.

Management: because it helps SAI organize its Sustainability Courses (create them, change them, assign them, grade them, etc). 

System: last but not least, is just a fancy word that translates to “software“. An LMS is a computer program. Just like Word helps you write documents and Gmail helps you manage your emails, an LMS is a software program that helps SAI to create, manage and deliver eLearning Sustainability Courses.

The Rak Tamachat Permaculture Design Institute Campus


campus image v2

The Rak Tamachat Education Permaculture Design Institute was designed from scratch to be a Permaculture and Natural Building Education Institute for Permaculture Asia. A Permaculture Master Plan was commissioned to assure that the Permaculture Design Institutes Campus would have all of the facilities necessary to provide a world-class Permaculture Design educational experiences.

The Permaculture Campus is located in an idyllic rural farming area, three hours from the capital of Thailand, Bangkok. The location adds to the authenticity of the Permaculture Design Institute in providing not only a showcase for international students but also the local Thai farming community. Listed as one of the Best Permaculture Design Campuses, Rak boasts over 3,000 SM under roof, which allows ample space for all the Permaculture activities a student needs in order to learn Hands-on Permaculture.

From the Communal Sala to the Amazing Permaculture Design Lecture Classroom and Tranquil Bungalows, all aspects of the Permaculture farm have been well designed and constructed out of Natural Materials. The Permaculture Campus is a showcase for the Natural Building Techniques taught on the Institute’s Natural Building Courses. The international standards of construction make the Rak Tamachat Permaculture Farm more of a “Permasort“, but that is what a great Permaculture Master Planning and fun work can achieve!
