Exabis ePortfolio allows students to create, collect and share outcomes of their learning process in form of a digital portfolio.
Exabis ePortfolio facilitates a learner driven way of attaining new competences, knowledge and skills, by creating and sharing artefacts as a learner.

This module can be used to work with digital competence grids within Moodle spanning over courses. 

Key features are: 

- ePortfolios can be built up individually or collaboratively
- materials, so-called artefacts, can be collected and published selectively using views
- learning products can be linked to competences (see exabis competence grids)
- export to Europass for CVs
- integration of OpenBadges
- export to SCORM-format
- base for using the DAKORA-app to individualize learning processes with competence grids.

This block can easily be added to a Moodle installation. It works course-independently.

Students can collect weblinks, files and notes and save them in self-defined categories. They can publish all or parts of their collected learning material, choosing to share their work with all or a selected group of users. Providing other students and teachers access to their ePortfolio makes it possible for their work to be assessed and reflected upon.

ePortfolios can be saved as a SCORM-package, and as such be used cross-platform for further work. The CV-functionality allows exporting to the Europass format.

Exabis ePortfolio is part of a suite of three main modules: 

Exabis ePortfolio
portfolio work 

Exabis Competencies - Competence grids
competency-based education connecting learning products  to competences and defining personalized learning paths using digital competence grids and. Base (together with exabis ePortfolio) for the DAKORA-App

Exabis student review
course spanning reporting tool of students’ achievements including assessment of soft skills.

The module can be used standalone or as part of this suite. Advantage of using all three modules together is that learner driven learning paths can be established – guided by trainers, self-paced, competency-based and personalised.

The free app DAKORA (working with digital competence grids) allows work with two of the modules (exaport, exacomp) with a simplified and innovative interface for tablets and smartphones which can be downloaded from all app stores. All data of the app is stored in MOODLE.

    Hello Andreas,
    Thank you so much for confirming this. I will give it a try on our production server and let you know.
    Kind regards,

    It worked well this time. Two important findings to share:
    When you copy the folder, it should go under: Moodle/portfolio/portfolio_plugin/exaport

    Second, make sure students have an "uploaded" assignment file for the import assignment to work. I kept getting blank list several times before realizing they students need to upload a file, not just submit an assignment, to get it to work.

    Hi, We have the plugin installed in a 3.5 environment and have an issue with the Download as PDF option with presentations. With a large sum of text the PDF generated is always 2 pages and starts with a blank page and weird cutoffs. I could sent an example by mail. Is this a known issue? If so what is the setting or workaround?

    Not having much luck setting this up for our staff....
    The teachers can add the Block, but it's not visible on the page. I can see it as Admin, but when I LogInAs (which is enabled on the plugin settings) I can't see it either.

    We've done the folder copying as suggested above but no change.

    Moodle 3.8.2+ (Build: 20200312) Version 2019111802.01

    The suggestions above only relate to using the exabis eportfolio block within the moodle-wide portfolio-function - this would enable portfolios on many places. Using the block is quite straight-forward, just needs installing in the /blocks-folder. There is no role-system to it. if you can see the block as an admin and your teachers can't this will probably relate to a permisson-problem. Is it possible that teachers have some sort of restriction on that?

    Hey everyone! I'm a developer working with Ismail, we got the plugin working -- it didn't look like it was working for a while as we discovered you must use an ATTACHMENT -- in our setup we just used a regular assignment type. So everything is indeed happily working for us.

    I would say, your plugin could check for the proper directory installation and if is empty, write the files automatically. Better yet just create a new empty plugin, as it does do a Moodle upgrade installation but has no information -- very confusing for administrators.

    Understandably as you guys are still developing, but thought I'd leave you some feedback. Cheers and thanks!

    Something strange is happening to me, block_exaport_max_uploadfile_size is 10M.
    However, when a student tries to upload a file the maximum allowed size is 500k.

    Hello Gil, maybe other restrictions that have been set for the student apply before? Regards, Andreas
  • Sun, Apr 18, 2021, 2:20 AM
    Hi Andreas, you're right ... I'm even ashamed to say this: the setting that needed to be changed was that of the discipline itself. I appreciate the suggestion, sometimes the obvious is the most difficult to understand. Thanks!
    (Sorry for my bad English.)

    Hello again Andreas!
    Some of my students, when trying to upload a file to their portfolio, receive an error message: "This type of file is not allowed."
    It happens with PDF files or Word files. I don't know what I can do to fix this problem ...
  • Mon, Apr 26, 2021, 9:50 PM
    Hello Gil, we just took a look into it. Actually we have no file-restrictions for the portfolio - maybe students are uploading to the icon picture-field - which has restrictions to the filetype (only images), regards Andreas
  • Wed, Apr 28, 2021, 12:01 AM
    Very well Andreas. I have to confirm this with my students. Perhaps that is the problem.
    Thanks again!
