Jodie Nicotra needed a solution for Dual Credit high school students throughout the state to turn in their writing portfolios. Currently students are turning them in through Blackboard, which has been an administrative nightmare. Jenine, Kari and I built this site in Weebly (it took about an hour) and then added a JotForm to the Submit Your Portfolio page. Weebly has form that would have accommodated the upload but we decided to go with JotForm because it will automatically send the student an email confirmation as well as sending portfolio reviewers an email with the attached file for review. Jodie seemed pretty happy with this solution.
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
