ePortfolios for Accreditation

Demonstrating life-long learning, skills, and development over time

Portfolium Accreditation

Portfolium is a robust and beautifully designed platform to help document and organize a university's culture, objectives, and standards. It can foster a depth and breadth of connections among other institutions as well as within the institution itself, its programs, and its constituents, while providing an efficient means to reinforce shared visions and commitments to its mission. As university ePortfolio users begin to develop their profiles, collaboration and activities occur that bridge gaps between outcomes and strategic decision-making.

Portfolium can provide your institution or program with a system to document, track, manage, and display resources for accreditation purposes for current/past students and alumni. Begin documenting your campus outcomes with archiving that will enable your institution to:

  • Showcases student work
  • Supports faculty through innovation
  • Measures academic effectiveness & SLOs
  • Documents evidence of learning & the true value of a degree
  • Documents evidence of learning & the true value of a degree
  • Full LMS integration
  • Customizeable rubrics & skills matrices
  • Enhances in-class assessments & engagement

The institution ePortfolio is endorsed by the Higher Learning Commission/AQIP as a valid vehicle to display an institution's accreditation materials. Universities across the nation are using Portfolium to build out their cases for various accrediting bodies such as: AQIP/HLC, SACS, and specialized program accreditation agencies. Currently, universities are making the connection with displaying student learning strategies and outcomes, while providing an avenue for documentation relating to assessment, and institutional effectiveness.

The addition of Portfolium to HBCU career initiatives is a step in the right direction toward bridging the gap between students, their big picture goals, and the employers that can catapult them forward.

Portfolium will be our one unifying tool embedded into the DNA and culture of our university. There will be a true ‘stickiness factor’ as the tool will be utilized by faculty and students within the classroom, by career services, alumni relations and student affairs.

An Integrated Faculty & Student Support Model

What is an ePortfolio Network?

Portfolios in higher education are not a new concept. Many universities have long been using portfolios to assess student work and review academic programs and curricula. In general terms, ePortfolios provide users with the digital tools to demonstrate their lifelong learning, skills, and development over time to selected audiences. Today, there is a growing need to migrate from paper-based portfolios to electronic portfolios as well as from legacy ePortfolio platforms to new ePortfolio networks.

These networks incorporate social and professional networking components that increase engagement, adoption and enthusiasm. Rather than a singular experience where a user essentially accesses a repository and has very little incentive to return at a later date, these networks keep users engaged with built-in features such as galleries, sub-networks, skills portals, as well as the common messaging features such as commenting, liking, sharing, and private messaging. The result is an academic graph that contains a very large amount of data for the partner institution to utilize in a number of capacities, including accreditation, employer relations, career services, alumni engagement, and academic affairs.

Why Portfolium?

Portfolium addresses an emerging need for students to have a digital network in which they can easily collect, build, manage, and reflect upon a digital archive of their academic and co-curricular work and activities. Within the academic graph, Portfolium solves a number of needs and use-cases. Students from a number of partner universities are currently using their Portfolium profiles to showcase their achievements, receive feedback and assessment from faculty, peers, potential employers and graduate programs.

In addition, they are utilizing the network as a whole to connect with other students, collaborate, discover skills and competencies and bridge the skills gap that currently exists between academia and the professional workforce. Portfolium's partner universities are using the platform to collect student work and assessment data for accreditation and marketing purposes, prospective recruitment of future students, and augmenting employer relations and engagement.
