This block can easily be added to a Moodle installation and provides ePortfolio functionality for each student and teacher course independently.
Students can build up their ePortfolios collecting weblinks, files and notes within individually defined categories.  ePortfolio-artefacts can be published to specific target-groups using views to start reflection and assessments.

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

Exabis ePortfolio is part of a suite of three main modules: Exabis ePortfolio (portfolio work), Exabis Competencies - Competence grids (connecting artefacts to competences and individualization paths using digital competence grids) and 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 – these are teacher guided, self-paced, competence-based and individualized.

The free app DAKORA (working with digital competence grids) which was developed together with the Federal Ministry of Education in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, allows work with all three modules with an innovative interface for tablets and smartphones which can be downloaded from all app stores.

    I've asked Andreas to fix a 0 byte index.php file and address the validation warning about the versions before approving this entry. Peace - Anthony

    installed without any error. But under "my porfolio", "Views" and "Shared Portfolio" tab, I have error "Error reading from database".

    I am translating the exabis E-portfolio plugin into mexican spanish in AMOS, but I found one english language string that looks odd to me:
    desp_language "Desp Sprache"
    Could it be "Language" ?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello Valero, thanks for you efforts! Desp is short for digital european language portfolio (s is sprache = language) - so you are right!

    I have installed E-Portfolio. Great! But there are two problems.
    1. The personal information does not come up in a view. I dragged the block on the right place but I don't see it back when ik choose for that view.
    2. Problem with IE 9: the views are total disturbed, also my links in the Moodlemenus are set under each other instead of placing them near each other. In Firefox I don't have this problem. My boss uses IE9 smile
    Please help me! Thanks.

    When I upload a file is it all ok, but in a few days (maybe a week) we get the message "Sorry, file not found".
    We are using Moodle 2.0. Do you know why is it happening?

    we had this problem with earlier version because of saving data in the draft-area but have corrected the problem. are you using the newest version?
