    Re: E-Portfolios

    Yes

    The head of ICT here is insisting that they develop them in Dreamweaver and she also wants them published to an Intranet server. I don't think thats entirely necessary myself but its what she wants...

    Re: E-Portfolios

    Josie Fraser recommends open source ELGG

    To quote Josie:

    "My advice? If you are investigating e-portfolios at the moment, hold on to your money. The only product I’d currently recommend is the excellent Elgg – a freely available, open source personal learning environment, suitable for use with all ages of learners which has a ton of unique and innovative features (easy podcasting for instance) and many more on the way, including Moodle integration. It’s currently being used worldwide, and is a flagship e-learning product for the UK."

    Re: E-Portfolios

    Integration of ELGG with Moodle and Drupal is on the cards, so you have e-portfolio, course management and content management inter-operating.

    There is some overlap in what each one does, but none does what the others do well.

    Interesting post yesterday on ideas on how to put it all together.

    Agreed. Apparently you can do class sites on it. Time for a re-appraisal!

    Time to get going?

    For some time now people have been asking about e-Portfolios, but not getting very far! As we all know Becta expects all schools to have a Learning Platform with the capability of an e-Portfolio.

    The trouble is that most VLEs have their own sort-of-an-e-Portfolio embedded within their system which prevents any sort of interoperability for a whole host of reasons.

    I have developed what I think is the 'perfect' e-Portfolio for UK schools, ie 'portable' from one school to another either latterally or vertically.

    Free trials for small groups who want to get stuck in now! Good for an end-of-term project for Yr-9 or Yr-11 students.
