Technology Stories

The C2L Campus Technology stories document a key element of ePortfolio initiatives – technology. While we all realize ePortfolio is more than a technology – it’s a pedagogy and culture, an approach to student, faculty and institutional learning - we also know that a software platform has a profound impact on the success and growth of an ePortfolio project. In these stories, C2L teams explore the qualities and implications of their current platform, examine how technology choices have shaped their ePortfolio initiative, and explain the strategies developed to support the use of ePortfolio technology at their institution.

Originally when ePortfolios were just starting to be used at St. John’s University we utilized Taskstream. This tool was selected after reviewing comparable tools on the market at the time like Livetext, Digication and Sakai. With limited resources and a list of demands from administrator focused on assessment we made a good decision at that time. We found the Taskstream platform to be extremely focused on assessment at that time with less flexibility on the front end as it related to the interface and social components Read more [...]

Stony Brook University – Technology Story

Our first steps in our eportfolio implementation was to review Stony Brook’s institutional mission and get to know the faculty, students, administration, support staff, and programs at Stony Brook.

It also was essential to identify the “Bright Spots”. What programs and faculty on campus were practicing student-centered, integrative and inquiry-based learning in their traditional and online classrooms? Read more [...]
