ePortfolio introduction

Read this as an introduction: http://www.imsglobal.org/ep/ (brochure in English, Spanish, French and Norwegian)

But in short, some people consider it as a folder where the evidences of learning are gathered together by each student, enabling the teacher to grade students progress in the course.

Requirements list

  • Three levels of permissions:
    1. A section for whole class contributions (kind of folder with perms for the whole class)
    2. Another for group work (several groups per class)
    3. Another for each individual (several people in a group)
  • The owner/s of a portfolio can create different views of the resources stored in the portfolio, and assign permissions to that views.
  • Definition of different relationships between the resources of the porfolio (many-to-many relations). The different kinds of relations are created by a administrator. The visitors of a portfolio can navigate using the relations between the resources.

Needed features

  • Blog, for gathering individual's thinkings on what he/she learned on a session, etc.
  • Wiki, for writing collaboratively among students for group or class folder.
  • Forum
  • Graphs (JGraphPad or similar, plus some Mind Mapping software for conceptual maps)
  • Autoavaluating/Peer review
  • Exercises (Quizzes, with improvements)
  • Categories, to enable categorizing content by habilities, types of work
