With Portfolium's student success platform, we are thrilled to enable competency and achievement preservation through digital artifacts that can be showcased in a marketable and accessible way to employers.

Albany State University (ASU) has partnered with Portfolium to provide the student success platform campuswide to 2,500+ students, enabling learners to capture, curate and convert evidence-based skills into future career opportunities.
As part of a larger partnership with the University System of Georgia, ASU plans to utilize the features provided by Portfolium's assessment software and ePortfolio platform in an initiative to bridge the skills gap between education and the workforce. Through Portfolium's platform, ASU will link academic and co-curricular learning with the career readiness skills needed to succeed in the professional workforce. As both a software and a network, Portfolium enables students the ability to collect learning artifacts and link them with evidence-based assessment, which can be connected to a digital marketplace of internships and jobs requiring those same competencies.
“Our idea of success is creating a learning environment where students can be fully engaged in their coursework and co-curricular learning,” said Dorene Medlin, Director of the Center for Faculty Excellence at Albany State. “With Portfolium's student success platform, we are thrilled to enable competency and achievement preservation through digital artifacts that can be showcased in a marketable and accessible way to employers.”
As a result of Portfolium’s intuitive user interface and seamless integration with the university’s current learning management system (LMS), Desire2Learn, Albany State will be able to launch campuswide with minimal student and faculty training. Faculty and administration will also benefit from Portfolium’s user-friendly assessment software, including tools such as learning pathway development, customizable rubrics tied to multiple student learning outcomes (SLO), and easy-one click SLO, program, and accreditation reporting.
“By partnering with Portfolium, Albany State University leads as an example of innovation in higher education learning,” said Troy Markowitz, Vice President of Academic Partnerships at Portfolium. “With Portfolium's innovative educational technology, we look forward to creating a hands-on, integrative learning environment for all Albany State students to engage in and translate into career ready skills as set by globally recognized industry standards.”
On campus, Portfolium will help to strengthen and promote student learning success by leading students from their transition into ASU, through their graduation, and toward their unique personal and professional path in life. Portfolium will enable students to build multi-dimensional ePortfolios, making them more attractive to potential employers.
