Implementation

E-portfolios are a feature of O-Space (online learning management system) and are currently in active use by many students and faculty on the Otis Campus. To date, O-Space contains over 1,000 e-portfolios. These e-portfolios have been self-initiated, assigned in classes, used as professional e-portfolios, and/or are required as part of a particular program.
 
The use of e-portfolios for the purposes of creating a Learning ePortfolio was beta-tested in select courses in Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2008-09, and was launched as an initiative in 2009-10 for all incoming foundation students in their Liberal Arts and Sciences courses.
 
Currently, Otis is in the process of college-wide implementation of Learning ePortfolios across all departments, including studio and major areas as well as co-curricular activities.
