      • EPICC
        • Assessment, showcase, development, reflective
      • JISC
        • Presentation, transition, learning
      • Becta
        • Learning, assessment, presentation, transition

  • Read/Write Web
    • Is this my ePortfolio?
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Identity
    • Identity is obviously a key component of an e-Portfolio
      • How many student/digital identities do you have or even estimate a lifelong learner will have?
      • Is there something that can be done to help manage this?
    • UK Unique Learner Number (ULN)
      • Lifelong access to authenticated record of achievements
    • Australia (AAF for Higher Education)
      • Identities in the AAF will be provided by IdP’s (typically Universities)
        • Identity is linked to an organisation
          • But will be able to move from one organisation to another organisation
        • Access rights largely based around the type of affiliation you have with an organisation
      • Will this work (from a lifelong learner perspective)?
  • Impact of Web 2.0
    • Organisational e-Portfolios vs Web 2.0 services
      • Organisational e-Portfolios
        • Strong integration with other aspects of the organisation (course, curriculum, assessment etc)
        • Satisfy specific needs within organisational boundaries very well
        • What happens when learner leaves the organisation?
        • Who owns the content?
      • Web 2.0 services
        • Gaining widespread support
          • In preference to organisational e-Portfolios?
        • Not constrained by organisational boundaries
        • W ho owns the content?
        • Trust?
        • Longevity?
    • Strong support for learner-owned e-Portfolios
      • Learners must own and be in control of their portfolios
  • A services model for e-Portfolios
    • JISC ePortfolio Engine Reference Model
      • ePortfolio described as a set of services
      • These services could be web services that are distributed across the Web
      • An ePortfolio implementation could be seen as an aggregation of a set of portfolio related services relevant to a particular set of needs (eg resume builder, planner, evidence store, presentation builder etc)
      • Organisations and ePortfolio system builders need not be responsible for providing all the services that are required by the users
      • Recognises that there is no ‘one size fits all approach’
      • Opportunity exists to include more generic web services to provide some of the functionality (eg blogs, document/image sharing services etc)
      • What are the policy considerations for such a model?
  • Service based implementation Users Certificate supplement? E-Portfolio ‘engine planning CV builder RPL claims reflection evidence networks identity access Claim verification authoring presentation aggregation Course information syndication Artefact mgmt
  •  
  • Policy and Business Issues
    • Guidelines for the development and provision of e-Portfolio services
    • Flexibility and Customisation
    • Storage
      • Where?
      • H ow long?
      • How much
        • Seems to be a major issue for a number of the organisational based e-Portfolios that we looked at
    • Accessibility
    • Identity
      • Learner Identity Management Framework (LIMF) / Australian Access Federation (AAF)
      • Evidence
      • A uthenticity
    • Data exchange
      • Policies and procedures
      • Formats
      • Interoperability (data format, vocabularies, qualifications etc
    • Ownership / Custodianship
  • Interoperability
  • Some definitions
    • Standards
      • A definition:
        • “ A Standard is a published document which sets out specifications and procedures designed to ensure that a material, product, method or service is fit for its purpose and consistently performs in the way it was intended.” (Standards Australia website: http://www.standards.org.au/cat.asp?catid=2 - March 2008)
    • Interoperability
      • Requires standards
      • Enables us to make ePortfolio related information portable (eg aggregation, syndication, migration)
      • Complete interoperability requires agreement on:
        • Communications method
        • Common data format
        • Semantics
        • vocabularies
      • Difficult to achieve
      • How necessary is it?
  • Some Standards and specifications
    • E -Portfolio related standards:
      • IMS
        • ePortfolio
        • RDCEO
        • LIP
        • Content Packaging
        • Vocabulary Definition Exchange
        • General Web services
      • RSS, Atom
      • WebDAV
      • W3C
      • Microformats (eg hResume)
      • Shibboleth / MAMS
      • HR-XML
      • FOAF
      • opensocial
