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.'"
