What should campuses consider when choosing an eportfolio program?
- Campus Technology offers a useful guide on how campus IT leaders can select the right fit for an e-portfolio integration, which can effectively help students to showcase courses of note, credentials and volunteerism work to potential employers.
- Some experts recommend a low-level platform to help the campus acclimate to a new culture of profiling and updating content, in an effort to identify the ultimate goals for the integration (institutional data mining, career development).
- Selecting the right technology review team, and factoring how the technology will actually be used by faculty and students, are key elements to introducing an effective rollout for e-portfolio presentation.
As with most technology, the primary goal is in examining the ways campus culture and technological capacity converge to provide quality user experiences for faculty and students.
But secondarily, this kind of launch develops campus' ability to showcase student performance analytics in a unique and simple way for students and graduates to use in career development, and for fundraisers and executives to use in making the case for philanthropic support.
