E-portfolio Capabilities of CourseNetwork (CN) – A New Generation LMS

Abstract. In this seminar, Dr. Ali Jafari will discuss and demonstrate the use of CN-Post as a new plugin tool available inside of the Atilim Moodle that promises to improve classroom engagement and to create ePortfolio sites for both students and instructors.

CN ePortfolio offers a lifelong academic personal website for students and instructors to showcase their academic and professional accomplishments and to network globally with peers throughout the word. The CN ePortfolio is now available to all members of Atilim university. Furthermore in this seminar, the “badge” feature of CN will be presented, which is a new method for micro certification and learning competencies.

E-portfolios and badges are designed to be valuable assets for students even after graduation, especially during job interviews. They are also valuable for program accreditation in order to demonstrate student achievements to accreditation boards. They can further be used to track the achievements of graduates in the workplace.
