University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) has chosen Portfolium’s Student Success platform to assess students’ learning artifacts while helping students share those same artifacts with employers as proof of competencies and skills.
Portfolium’s ePortfolio technology will help students maintain lifelong access to curricular and co-curricular learning artifacts in order to reflect on their skills and navigate their career journeys. These skill-tagged artifacts can then be leveraged by students to land internship and employment opportunities through Portfolium’s unique social network and TalentMatch features.
Staff and faculty will also benefit from the partnership through Portfolium’s Assessment software, allowing faculty the ability to conduct direct, authentic assessments of student work samples to accurately measure student learning outcomes. Portfolium’s intuitive assessment tools also include customizable rubrics, curriculum mapping and easy one-click reporting.
Portfolium’s seamless integration with the Canvas LMS was a key decision point for USAO in selecting the Student Success platform, along with Portfolium’s “easy-to-use platform and integrated assessment capabilities,” as cited by Kelly Brown, Vice President of Library & Information Technology Services at USAO.
“At Portfolium, we understand the importance of solidifying the connection between learning and opportunity in order to realize definitive Student Success,” said Troy Markowitz, VP of Academic Partnerships at Portfolium, “This is why we are thrilled to provide the metrics and platform needed to make that a reality at USAO.”
