Web 2.0 & commercial ePortfolios
The author of this Campus Technology article also published an earlier article, "ePortfolios Meet Social Software" which discusses some of the "stickiness" issues with ePortfolios, and the interest in the "own-it-for-life model" of implementation.
As you know, the use of Web 2.0 tools is an integral part of the University of Calgary approach ... we trust students will leave our program with ICT embedded as an important part of how they work ... commercial product rest stripping this important away ...
I really like your distinction between Assessment Management Systems and Personal Learning Environments. PLEs are for student learning but so often they are buried in AMSs, for the benefit of institutional control, not the student.
I'm Zee from The Sultan Idris University of Education in Malaysia. I'm with the Faculty of Science and Technology, also currently the director for The Center for Technology and Multimedia. I am also teaching science education courses (Theories, strategies and Practice in science education)
E-portfolio is relatively new to me. I wish to introduce it to my Masters students this coming semester (commencing Mid December).
What are the challenges in implementing ePortfolios? Some suggestions as to how I could manage would be much appreciated.
