Transforming your staff's potential

Sunday, December 28, 2008 Tidbits: ePortfolio

Here is the weekly sampling from my favorites list. This time I chose the tag "ePortfolio." Here is what I found I have:

Implementing Electronic Portfolios: Benefits, Challenges, and Suggestions: An article from Educause Quarterly describing research findings on the lessons learned during initial implementation of e-folios at four teacher education programs.

Using to Create an Easy, Always Updated Online Portfolio: From The Bamboo Project blog, a how-to post on using a account as an ePortfolio platform.

Guide to Using Free Tools to Create an Online Portfolio: Another great post from Michelle Martin's The Bamboo Project blog. It includes 6 steps to building an ePortfolio, examples, resources and further reading.

FreeFolio: Freefolio is an e-Portfolio and social knowledge management system. Based on the Wordpress system it is scalable and modular in design. It is designed to be easily customisable to meet different specific needs.

ePortfolio class notes: A guiding document to discussion about ePortfolios and the use of Blackboard's ePortfolio tool as implemented at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Mahara: Mahara is an open source e-portfolio system with a flexible display framework. Mahara also features a weblog, resume builder and social networking system, connecting users and creating online learner communities.

Out of the classroom and beyond: A white paper in .pdf format by Microsoft that identifies the
challenges and discuss some lessons learned in the Washington State University effort to adopt an eportfolio program based on Microsoft® Office SharePoint Server 2007.
