ePortfolios Meet Social Software


"The result of six years of research and development, Epsilen Environment is being billed as a new model for the next generation of lifelong learners and professionals. It comes bundled with an ePortfolio management system, global learning system, group collaboration software, object repository, blogging tools, wiki application, messaging capabilities, and resume writing software, among other tools... IUPUI's Ali Jafari, Ph.D., Epsilen's architect and principal investigator, believes that the new ePortfolio/social software hybrid will provide the 'stickiness' needed to expand a true adoption rate and get people to use the technology. 'Conceptually, this is what has been missing from the ePortfolio,' he says. 'We...have built Epsilen to the specifications of a new online culture, and there are a lot of goodies in there to encourage people to continue using and maintaining their Epsilen accounts.'"
