  • 18. C-Stickproject
    • Moving from a very small-scaled pilot at JES to a more large-scaled implementation:
      • in some sections of the Flemish Employment Service (VDAB) and integration with their e-portfolio ‘Mijn Loopbaan (My Career)’.
      • Other youth organisations
      • Some schools
    • Evolution grew from a bottom up process
    • Sets standards for future e-portfolio development in Flanders
  • 19. Strenghts
    • Accessible for a low-skilled target group
    • Coincides with existing terminology and data systems (VDAB)
    • Can be used in different settings: leisure time activities, training and job counselling.
  • 20. Threats and weaknesses
    • C-Stick system was not developed to be used by several organisations
    • No clear agreements with the software developers concerning ownership
    • No funding for further development and to cover staff costs.
  • 21. Opportunities
    • Funding from the Flemish Employment Service
    • Successful negotiations with the software developing company.
    • Centre was set up at JES to provide training and distribute C-Sticks to other organisations at commercial prices
    • Technical research and development is carried out to accomplish data transfer between the C-Stick and the e-portfolio from the Flemish Employment Service ‘Mijn Loopbaan’
  • 22. Conclusion
    • It’s impossible to create one portfolio that meets the needs of all target groups.
    • People should be able to switch from one portfolio to another.
    • ‘ Mijn Loopbaan’ as a central, secured platform from which data can be imported and exported from and to other e-portfolios.
    • Conditions for future e-portfolios: to use a shared competence terminology and a shared standard model for data transfer.
  • 23. Conclusion
    • To make large-scale implementation financially possible, the following issues should be addressed:
      • respond to the needs of a specific target group or organisation,
      • make clear ownership agreements to avoid expensive licences
      • a sound business plan to finance continuing training and distribution.
