Sakai includes the robust Open Source Portfolio e-Portfolio system. Sakai’s portfolio functionality allows users to store, organize and present digital representations of their teaching, learning or institutional achievement. It facilitates the creation of portfolios for self-presentation, reflection, as well as supporting program and institutional assessment.
STUDENTS: The OSPortfolio provides an environment where portfolio owners — typically, students — can exhibit their work.
1. tools to collect items that best represent their accomplishments, their learning, or their work;
2. tools to reflect upon these items and their connections;
3. tools to design a portfolio that showcases the best selections of this work;
4. and tools to publish the portfolio to designated audiences.
FACULTY: The OSPortfolio also offers tools for faculty — anyone who coordinates a Common Interest Group (CIG) such as a course or any other club or project — to provide structure and guidance for CIG participants (students). CIG coordinators, evaluators, reviewers and portfolio guests are able to review published portfolios — and can also provide formal evaluation or informal feedback and comments. Tools for analysis of portfolio items "in aggregate" also make it possible for CIG coordinators, administrators or program evaluators to measure program effectiveness or educational outcomes.
