Portfolios for the Future of Sakai

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Thursday 6th June, 2013

8:45am to 9:30am (PST)

The Open Source Portfolio (OSP) tools in Sakai are well known for their assessment matrices and sharable portfolios. Although these tools have served the community well, more flexibility and expanded reporting capabilities are needed to address the needs of current and future portfolio workflows. Kyoto University, MATI Montr?al, Virginia Tech, and Three Canoes LLC have teamed up to launch Portfolios for the Future of Sakai. We aim to provide a flexible solution in the spirit of OSP that is LTI-enabled for integration with the Sakai CLE and eventually Sakai OAE. We will demonstrate how this new functionality enables Kyoto University to capture the many nuances of their assessment portfolio workflow for a new doctoral program in global leadership. Our demonstration will illustrate how to create rubrics to assess evidence of learning, insert instructor comments, generate a student dashboard, and produce assessment reports.
