Santa Clara University (SCU) has selected Portfolium to provide ePortfolios to more than 9,000 students and assessment software to faculty, campus-wide. SCU chose to migrate to Portfolium because of the convenience for faculty to assess artifacts through a Canvas integration and in order to provide an ongoing platform for student reflection.
“We hope use of Portfolium will increase usage of ePortfolio assignments across the curriculum. This includes usage of ePortfolios beyond academics, e.g., in Student Life and Career Services, so that each student’s portfolio becomes a true and complete reflection of student accomplishments, skills, and talents over their four year journey at SCU,” said Nancy Cutler, Deputy CIO for Academic Technology.
As both a software platform and a network, Portfolium uniquely advances the shared interests of higher ed, students, and employers. Portfolium’s learning graph links validated student learning outcomes from co-curricular and academic learning artifacts to a digital marketplace of internships and jobs requiring those same competencies. SCU students and alumni will benefit from free, lifelong access to Portfolium, and SCU will expand upon its ability to measure student progress through and beyond graduation using Portfolium’s reporting and analytics capabilities.
SCU’s migration to Portfolium was made easy as a result of a lean implementation process, enthusiasm by students, and the platform’s seamless integration with Canvas by Instructure which makes assessment of artifacts convenient for SCU faculty.
“We are thrilled to welcome SCU into our customer community,” said Troy Markowitz, VP Academic Partnerships at Portfolium. “Portfolium is excited to support SCU’s strong tradition of assessment and student success.”
