Desire2Learn Inc., today unveils ePortfolio, a much anticipated new product that enables users to track, record, and reflect upon their progress from K-12, to post-secondary education and beyond. An ePortfolio is a digital repository of artifacts that demonstrates progress and achievement. Pairing social networking and informal learning with the traditional classroom, Desire2Learn ePortfolio provides users and institutions with a customized and personalized learning journey.

ďWe are very excited to launch ePortfolio. With extensive input from our clients and intense research and development over the past four years, this product is responsive to individual user and institutional needs. Our innovative ePortfolio is shaped by the needs of our considerable client base,Ē stated John Baker, Desire2Learn President & CEO. ďWith ePortfolio we are making great strides in breaking down the barriers to learning. ePortfolio captures the richness of a userís journey throughout their lifetime. The initial response to Desire2Learn ePortfolio has been outstanding.Ē

ďAt Oral Roberts University, we have a compelling vision to operationalize an integrated toolset for collecting, aggregating, analyzing, and reporting assessment data and information using the Desire2Learn Learning Management System,Ē said Dr. Marty Crossland, Associate Dean of Online Academic Services, Oral Roberts University. ďWe believe that Student Assessment must occur within the toolset, across courses, programs
and the institution and also encompass external validation such as professional testing, certification, licensure, alumni surveys and even alumni employer surveys. With the addition of the new Desire2Learn ePortfolio to their eLearning Suite, I believe Desire2Learn has the potential to be the most powerful and most integrated toolset for assessment across all levels of the institution.Ē

Key Benefits include:

Personalized Learning: Todayís users demand a personalized learning experience that extends beyond the traditional classroom boundaries to include social networks of peers, evaluators, and even external experts. ePortfolio uses Web 2.0 standard interface components such as a dashboard, tagging, and inline help to engage users. Desire2Learn ePortfolio also allows users to control what goes into their portfolio, how items are organized, and when items are organized and presented. The userís ability to publish anything within the ePortfolio creates a complete view of their learning journey. Assessments and comments using rubrics can be applied to any of the diverse artifacts, reflections, presentations, and collections within the ePortfolio to provide a comprehensive perspective of the learning journey.

Seamless Integration and Efficient Administration: If combined with the Learning Environment, Desire2Learn ePortfolio offers users a consistent and engaging experience. Flexible permissions and configurations allow users to personalize and customize the ePortfolio to meet the needs of users at all levels within an institution. Desire2Learnís industry-leading competencies and learning objectives can be tied directly into the userís ePortfolio and the social activities that are within it. The connection between the institution and the userís social learning network provides the institution significant insight to assess and understand its organizational effectiveness. Desire2Learn ePortfolio can reduce administrative redundancy in HelpDesk, IT staff and User Management through the integration with the Desire2Learn Learning Environment.

Flexibility and Scalability: ePortfolio is flexible and designed to support the needs of varying programs and disciplines within an institution. Users can use ePorfolio for professional development, job seeking, assessment, and even accreditation. Desire2Learn ePortfolio can reflect the unique environment of an institution and still deliver the mission-critical, enterprise-scale performance that Desire2Learn solutions are known for.

A New Era of Learning
