Using learning objectives in ePortfolio

Learning objectives are a type of ePortfolio item that enable you to take ownership of your learning by allowing you to manage and track personal learning goals.

You can:

  • Associate learning objectives with artifacts, reflections, collections, and presentations that demonstrate progress toward your learning plan. If you submit a learning objective to a dropbox folder, its associated items go with it.
  • Share learning objectives with rubrics attached to them to generate feedback and informal assessment from other ePortfolio users. (Items associated with a learning objective are not available to others unless you specifically share them.)
  • Display learning objectives in presentations and add them to collections.
  • Submit a learning objective to a dropbox folder for formal assessment. Associated items serve as evidence toward meeting the learning objective.
  • Use learning objectives as an organizational tool by categorizing your ePortfolio items by learning experience.
  • Delete learning objectives that are no longer relevant to your learning path.
