SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) June 07, 2018
Henderson State University (HSU) is implementing Portfolium, rounding out a series of technology investments including a migration to the Canvas learning management system (LMS) by Instructure. HSU intends to use Portfolium as a 3-dimensional transcript that combines non-academic experiences with formal assessments of in-class learning.
Portfolium’s ePortfolio technology will help students curate and showcase learning from outside of the classroom to employers as they venture into the career marketplace in search of internships and full time employment. HSU will leverage analytics from Portfolium’s platform to measure impact on student employment rates within 6 months of graduation.
Portfolium was selected as an all-in-one solution that included every feature the University was looking for, including assessment functionality which allowed HSU to eliminate other assessment tools. Portfolium’s seamless integration with the Canvas LMS was also a key decision point for the University in selecting a platform that faculty would support.
