This plugs directly into Moodle to provide portfolios;
Home - mahara.org
You can also use moodle smb web client to go direct to your students home drive to provide a kindof almost eportfolio
Moodle also has pretty good integration with SIMS, and it doesn't require sharepoint
Integrate Moodle, LDAP and SIMS.net - MoodleDocs
don't blame your tools! adapt and learn
as all the solutions I looked at were linux based and everything i have is windows !

I'm under the impression Mahara doesn't like windows much though?

Never had much luck integrating Mahara wth moodle but I think thats our install at fault. There's elgg as well. As for Sharepoint and Sims Learning Gateway thats quite an interesting job Capita will come and install it on your sharepoint server which may take a couple of days. Sharepoint isn't a difficult system to setup it just gets awkward and longwinded if you do things to it I have lol. As for the SIMS to Moodle that's quite straightforward and you can also integrate Moodle into Sharepoint as well I believe.

Mahara 1.1 should be installable on Windows, but Mahara 1.0 requires some things that don't ship with Windows. For those people who are adventurous enough to try, it seems that you need to install an equivalent of the 'file' program (see Bug #700), among other things, to make it work.
Instructions for installing using WAMP Server are available for Mahara, which may help you too.
seems not. I guess it's all about using the best tools for the job.
I try and take the view that if something can run well on linux then I'll use linux, if I need a paid for OS for a particular application then I'll use one.

- Rep Power
That would certainly improve the profile page, but not quite sure how it would solve my integration woes
