JISC InfoKit on ePortfolios

One of the sites mentioned on the web page I linked to in my last post is the JISC InfoKit on ePortoflios. It’s worth mentioning separately.

The infoKit has been put together by JISC InfoNet, a JISC Advance service (like Netskills) based at the University of Northumbria. It is intended as a comprehensive resource for institutions looking to implement and get the most out of ePortfolios. It covers a wide range of topics including:

  • Defining what ePortfolios are and possible purposes
  • Common misconceptions
  • Different perspectives (learner, practitioner, employer, professional body and institution)
  • Strategies for choosing, implementing and embedding ePortfolios

It also provides a useful companion to the JISC guide on Effective Practice with ePortfolios: Supporting 21st Century Learning

While you’re there, have a look at some of the other infoKits.
