We support various stand-alone ePortfolio systems that can also be integrated into a wider virtual learning framework. A vle with integrated e-portfolio provides an ideal platform for meeting the needs of established and emerging pedagogy and approaches to learning.
A stand-alone e-portfolio is often two things: an e-portfolio and a social networking system combined. An e-portfolio is a system in which students or indeed staff can record "evidences of lifelong learning" - such as essays, artwork or other such things they produce that can be stored digitally. Such things are known as artefacts in our preferred system. Social networking systems need little introduction - think Myspace, Facebook or Bebo. Basically, they give a way for people to interact with their friends and create their own online communities.
