ePortfolio West Coast Summit

A low-cost conference on ePortfolios, Day of Dialogue, is set for February 29, 2009, in San Francisco. The Day's fee is $125.

Conference sponsor California State University maintains a helpful web site called ePortfolios in the CSU. A clever conceptualization on the site captures major themes for ePortfolios with graphics and phrases.

The CSU site is of highest value to institutions searching for a starting point in selecting an ePortfoio system. Enough platforms are mentioned to drive home the important point: there is no single recommended software. Even though needs vary from one institution to the next, some guidance in selection procedure is possible and the materials here provide that.

(I will be on one of the panels at the Day of Dialogue in San Francisco. Hope to see you there.)
