Electronic Portfolios using wordpress and Microsoft Live’s SkyDrive to assess the Liberal Arts
During academic year 2010-2011, faculty members, staff, and students at Eastern CSU from ten academic departments – Education, Business Administration, Communication, English, Environmental Earth Science, History, Mathematics, Political Science, Sociology, and Visual Arts – and Housing explored the applications of live@edu and wordpress.com for student self-assessment, academic advisement, document storage and organization, and course and program assessment. Lessons learned were used in the ongoing planning for an ePortfolio system that might be widely used as part of Eastern liberal education program and as a student and program assessment system. Challenges included online platform changes, privacy concerns, and teaching computer applications.
