RSC e-Assessment: Using e-Portfolios to create a learning community and to support assessment and reflective practice - at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

RSC e-Assessment: Using e-Portfolios to create a learning community and to support assessment and reflective practice - at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

Not sure if it is good practice to scoop from your own blog (!) but I thought this case study I recorded with staff and students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly the RSAMD) might be of wider interest than my blog! The reasons for using an e-Portfolio system, in this case Mahara, and the challenges, benefits and lessons learned from embedding it in the curriculum by staff in the Schools of Music and Drama are all covered in this case study. There is a video interview (with corresponding transcript) and written case study.

RSC Scotland - Newsfeed: Featured Article: Accessible e-Portfolio Pilot | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

This article by my colleague Margaret McKay, the Advisor for Access and Inclusion at the JISC RSC Scotland introduces a new open source e-Portfolio tool that has been specifically created for students with learning disabilities/difficulties. Having seen a run-through of it, I like some of the features which include a picture password, a clean, easy to navigate interface and inbuilt 'Scottish' text to speech capacities.

Education Week's Digital Directions: E-Portfolios Evolve Thanks to Web 2.0 Tools

Education Week's Digital Directions: E-Portfolios Evolve Thanks to Web 2.0 Tools | e-Assessment in Further and Higher Education | Scoop.it

Some interesting uses of a range of technologies and processes to create digital portfolios. The article focuses on schools but I think there are ideas here for documenting a learning journey in other contexts..."New technologies are making it quicker and easier than ever to create digital portfolios of student work, a method of assessment experts say increases student engagement."
