E-portfolio Site Upgrade

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

The e-lab has just released an update to its e-portfolio system, available at https://portfolio.elab.athabascau.ca.

This update includes security and bugfixes, and introduces some new functionality to the e-portfolio system that we hope you will enjoy, including:

  • the ability to include content from sources such as
    • Slideshare
    • WikiEducator
    • Vimeo
    • Flickr
    • LinkedIn
  • Google Apps (Docs, Books, Maps, and Calendar)
  • reusable text boxes that can be shared between portfolios
  • enhanced privacy controls on profiles
  • more intuitive user interface

Whether you are a student, graduate, potential student, staff member, or are affiliated with the University, e-portfolios in the e-lab offer a secure, easy and reliable way to reflect on and record your

  • Academic achievements
  • Professional development
  • Readiness for university work
  • Ideas for course development and revision
  • Research progress

E-portfolios allow you to create or import text, photographs, audio and video files; to share portfolio components with specified people for specified periods of time. They are a dynamic online tool that can help you to reflect on your learning as well as a practical way to collect, create, revise, organize, re-organize, and share evidence of your intellectual and professional growth.

We hope you'll enjoy the additions to your e-portfolio tool.  Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
