Question about eportfolios

I am researching eportfolios for a pitch to my k-8 DL program.  They sound like they would fit our program perfectly, but I don’t have any experience with them.

I am wondering if anyone has experience with using eportfolios in  k-12 system that they could share – platform, security, etc.

If you prefer, you could email me at sonnannAtgmailDotcom.

I would appreciate any advice, particularly about platforms used.

Thanks,

gillian

I’ve looked at a Drupal installation which is intended to help with the creation of an ePortfolio. The nice is that the package is built on top of Drupal, so you get one of the really nice side benefits of Drupal for free, flexible permissions.

We’re testing Mahara (http://www.mahara.org/) in the post0secondary realm, Gillian.

It was chosen for testing because:

* it’s open source
* it’s scalable
* it works well with Moodle
* it is built on the notion of individual user control

Take a look.

Thanks, David W. I will take a look to see if will fit.

Funnily enough, David P., I came across Mahara today but didn’t have time to check into it. I was going to take a look tomorrow.

Now I know how I will be spending my holiday!
