    The University of Wisconsin System sponsored a pilot project for the D2L e-portfolio product, starting in January 2009. The goal of this pilot was to explore the newly developed ePortfolio tool by Desire2Learn, the UWS centrally supported Learning Management System. The direct integration of the D2L eP product with the LMS offers advantages in portfolio building and easy access by faculty mentors and students. It was determined that this product could offer additional advantage in familiar interface and availability to all students who are users of D2L.

    What are ePortfolios? Why should students make them?
    A portfolio is commonly a physical carrying case used for porting paper-based materials, though perhaps more importantly, the collection is often a current project or a representative collection of a person's work. Being portable, the artist can retrieve or select materials from the case at any given time and present the work to different people or to small groups in the context of the situation. Think similarly now about this concept and attribute it to what's called an electronic portfolio, or ePortfolio.

    Thanks to the success of the pilot, the University of Wisconsin System adopted the ePortfolio tool for the entire system. As of June of 2011, any campus can employ the ePortfolio tool inside D2L. At UWM, the School of Education and College of Nursing have both adopted the D2L ePortfolio tool.

    With questions or to participate in the pilot at UWM, or to make comments on this page, feel free to contact me at either russelmr@umw.edu or ltc@uwm.edu.

    What are ePortfolios? Why should students make them?
    A portfolio is commonly a physical carrying case used for porting paper-based materials, though perhaps more importantly, the collection is often a current project or a representative collection of a person's work. Being portable, the artist can retrieve or select materials from the case at any given time and present the work to different people or to small groups in the context of the situation. Think similarly now about this concept and attribute it to what's called an electronic portfolio, or ePortfolio.
    An ePortfolio is typically thought of as an organized collection of digital media files that represent one's work or achievements over time. These files can be text-based writing samples, audio or video clips, photographs, presentations, and projects. One key difference is that the files, or documents, are stored as digital data accessible on the web. A web-based ePortfolio can also be designed and made accessible to a specific audience, to peers, professors, advisers, potential employers, or to anyone on the web. Another key attribute is that the owner of an ePortfolio can write, or record, thoughtful reflections on the material as a matter of learning, by taking one's experience more completely into account. Other people can also comment on a person's work, providing multiple perspectives on the material.

    Individual Courses at UWM: There are a number of individual courses, in face-to-face, blended, and online formats, from a variety of disciplines using the ePortfolio tool at UWM. Here is a sample of the disciplines:

    Background
    The University of Wisconsin System is sponsoring a pilot project for the D2L e-portfolio product started in January 2009. The goal of this pilot is to explore the newly developed ePortfolio tool by Desire2Learn, the UWS centrally supported Learning Management System. The direct integration of the D2L eP product with the LMS offers advantages in Portfolio building and easy access by faculty mentors and students. This product can offer additional advantage in familiar interface and availability to all students who are users of D2L.
    The Project
    The Office of Learning Technology Development sponsored the cost of the 1500 pilot user licenses. The Learn@UW utility offered free support of the software as well as disk space usage during the pilot. A decision was made to host the D2L eP product fully integrated with the production Learning Environment locally. This provides a full experience for users who has access to their current D2L courses, as well as the Competency and Rubrics modules if desired.
    The pilot was originally planned for one year. It has since been extended for free (No additional cost for licenses) for an additional 18 months, allowing more thorough evaluation of the product by the participating campuses. There has been regular exchange of issues, suggestions and feedback to D2L from the Learn@UW support team and the participating campuses. Feedback are being collected from both faculty and students during the pilot.

    ePortfolio: Suggested Best Practices
    ePortfolio use should begin slowly and with a spirit of experimentation
    ePortfolios should anticipate meeting students’ academic and professional needs
    ePortfolios must meet explicit course learning objectives
    ePortfolios must be easy to use and grade for both students and faculty
    ePortfolios should have the capability to capture more than UWM academic experience
    ePortfolio use will increase when integrated with other applications or D2L tools
    All ePortfolio work must be tied directly to course assessment items!
    ePortfolio use and support improves with consistent systematic planning and familiarity with the tool
