CUNY SPS – Scaling Up, Scaling Back


At the School of Professional Studies, with mostly fully-online programs, ePortfolio provides a space outside of the “four walls” of Blackboard for students to save and share their academic work across courses and semesters. As a school for degree completers, with mostly fully online programs, SPS faces an unusual set of challenges with ePortfolio implementation. Most of our students are adult learners, looking to advance their education while meeting full time employment and family responsibilities. They may resent ePortfolio as another platform to learn or not understand why they are being asked to submit work via ePortfolio rather than in the more familiar Blackboard LMS. Our challenge has been to make ePortfolio meaningful as a space to share and reflect on learning and through other facets of online student life at SPS.
