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'd like to report a problem with sharing options. Indeed, for a view, when you select "External Access", the view is defacto visible by all Moodle Members in "shared portfolios". I think this is due to the fact that if you want it to be visible by external users it has to be visible by all. But we can expect that, with the option "External Access", only people with the link containing the hash can access the view. So is it possible to hide portfolios shared with external access in the page "shared portfolios" ? Thanks, regards.

    Hi Frank,

    indeed there seems to be a bug with the external sharing. After fixing this issue we will release a new version. Thx for your help!
