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.

    Good evening Andreas,

    I'm testing the Exabis e-portfolio module (in moodle 3.7) and I have questions about bugs :

    - minor display issue resolved by applying standard appearance in course where the block is active
    - I can't see shared categories (are they really shared ?)
    - I can export one portfolio (in scorm-zip file) but I can't import it later.

    Did you know about this ?

    Hello Étienne, thank you for the information. We will take a look at this and get back to you on this, regards Andreas

    Hallo Andreas,

    Ich habe einen Fehler mit dem Plugin (neueste Version und Moodle 3.7) : Ich kann die erstellten Kategorien nicht teilen (auch durch Ankreuzen des entsprechenden Kästchens).
    Oder müssen Sie mehrere Benutzer haben? (Ich kann meine eigenen Aktien nicht sehen).

    Vielen Dank im Voraus.

    Hallo Étienne, wir haben gerade Änderungen vorgenommen und im experimental-Branch von exaport auf github publiziert. Es sollte auf 3.7 das behoben sein. Die Darstellungsfehler konnten wir nicht nachvollziehen, hier bitten wir um nähere Hinweise, vielleicht hängt das mit einem verwendeten Theme zusammen, liebe Grüße, Andreas

    Hi Andrea,
    I like this plugin and plan to use it on Moodle 3.4. However, when I try to import an assignment from a student account, I see an empty table of tasks.. This student has some assignments but can't find them in the same course. Students can't also see the "import to portfolio" button found in their forum discussions.

    When I tried from a teacher/ admin account, it showed "At the moment, you don't have any assignment" which is logical in this case..

    Is there any special role permission or authentication that need to be configured? Kindly let me know.

    Hello Ismail, is the portfolio-interface enabled? the folder portfolio_plugin/exaport has to be uploaded to the Moodle installation into the /portfolio-Folder and activated by the admin. Then the import link should work properly moodle-wide for all participants, cheers Andreas

    Hello Andreas,
    Thank you for your response. Is there a documentation for this process or an additional plugin I need to install? I am my managing my own server, but need to figure out where this folder should be exactly located or activated.
    Thanks again.

    Hello Ismail, yes, there is. Find it here: https://exabis.at/en/ - in the Google-Docs-part, cheers Andreas

    Hey andreas, I have already studied all documentations in that link. However, I couldn't find what is missing. I have all four plugins installed, activated and configured (portfolio, grid, library and review). Students can build a portfolio, share artifacts, access shared views and categories, etc.

    The only two things I can't find now:
    - how to add an "Export to portfolio" button to discussion forums.
    - Import from Moodle-assignments. (This option exists, but shows only a blank list of assignments despite submitting some already)..

    I see both "exacomp" and "exacaport" folders and associated files under the Moodle Blocks main folder. Is there a sub-folder I need to manually upload or a permission to edit?
  • Fri, Feb 7, 2020, 3:35 PM
    Hello Ismail, you need to copy a folder from exaport (subfolder /portfolio_plugin) to the moodle-portfolio-folder which is /portfolio. Then you have to activate the portfolio as an admin for Moodle. Afterwards you will see the links. Cheers Andreas

    Hallo together,
    if i share a view with the optione "external link" and i use this link, then i will be forwarded to the moodle login.
    I would expect, that sharing this way does not need a login.
    Is this behavoiur as it should or is that an error?

    Hello Steffen, this is not an error but rather a security issue. Within the Moodle-installation the guest access option must be set so a resource, such as an external link which resides within Moodle, can be accessed, best regards, Andreas

    Hello Andreas, Just to let you know the portfolio import has finally worked. I did copy the folder you mentioned. The function didn't work right away and I don't think it is a cache issue. I then tried to install the old "portfolio" module again and activate it. https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=mod_giportfolio

    I guess that triggered the import feature to work.. Just to confirm, is it required to install this module as well for Exabis to work in that case?? I will still need to repeat the process in a production server and need to confirm this point..
    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Ismail,

    I tried right now for Moodle 3.4 and 3.5
    - last version of Exaport from experimental branch
    - copied the directory /portfolio_plugin/exaport to MOODLE/portfolio/
    - activated it as admin user
    thats all, it worked

    Regarding the export from forum discussions - this function has not been implemented yet, we have only done this for submitted assignements.
