WordPress ePortfolios

Date: Friday, July 15, 2016
Time: 4:15 - 5:00 pm (EDT) (UTC-04:00)
Format: General Lecture Session

Session description

Has your institution tried an ePortfolio solution that didn't meet your needs? You're not alone. Come to this session to learn how we leveraged NYU's existing university-wide Web Publishing service, powered by WordPress, and how we integrated a scalable solution using templates to fill this need. The use cases that led to this solution focused on the visual elements of a portfolio combined with the structure of the content, rather than the accreditation elements that often accompany portfolios and assessments.
