IUPUI – Technology: There Are No Silver Bullets

IUPUI uses the Open Source Portfolio tools in Sakai, customized to the needs and preferences of faculty, students, and staff of the Indiana University system. Because it is embedded in our LMS, the environment is used for a range of teaching, learning, and assessment purposes. Despite its advantages, the platform looks and feels dated. Its complexity is both beneficial and daunting, and users’ expectations today are colored more by Facebook and Twitter than by the first LMS platforms. Thus, IU is exploring future technology options, and ePortfolio users at IUPUI are providing leadership in articulating requirements.
