ePortconsortium's Resource Page

Don't be put off by the older dates on this web site. Items from several years ago are highlighted frequently but the overall collection is not stale. The ePortconsortium.org Resources page is a rich annotated (and hyperlinked) list of ePortfolio software packages, projects, and examples.

The consortium is a set of developing members (working on Epsilen, for example) as well as individuals and corporations. Founding members were IUPUI, Bowling Green State U, U of Wisconsin - Eau Claire, Penn State, Maricopy Community Colleges, and UCLA. Today's member count: 1190 individuals and 896 institutions. Representation is from 68 countries.

Exploring the site, you can also link to the newer group space that includes conference announcements. Some of the resource links go nowhere, a frequent problem with extensive listings. On the other hand, the nature of educational technology has some protections: many of the resources listed may have long moved the intended page but still load a link or a web page that permit you to locate newer material on the subject. And for those of us who still persist in making reference to the Syllabus conference and magazine, there's an efficient link from the old name Syllabus to the current day Campus Technology.
