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.

    Hi Andreas
    Thank you very much. It is working perfectly. I will be using it for my students and will report if there's any bug.
    So many thanks again for sharing the file even before adding it to Moodle.org.
    Regards

    Hi everyone,

    I'm suing exabis eportfolio on Moodle 2.3.1. Amazingly, we've just found out that some users (not all of them) cannot share the activities (link, file or note ) they create. When they click on SHARE they get the message:
    loading userlist...
    but nothing happens.

    Could anybody shed light on this? Thank you.

    Albert

    hello albert, when the userlist gets very long, we heard that problems may have occured - we had a contribution to the code to optimize this: https://github.com/gtn/exaport/tree/moodle_2x_stable - you can also go for a newer version of exaport, regards andreas

    Hi everyone,
    I installed the exabis porfolio on our Moodle server (build 2.9.+ 20151028) recently. The plugin seems to function properly but something goes wrong: When a file is uploaded I recieve the error message: "error reading database" (dutch: "Fout bij het lezen van de databank").
    Is this a database or a filesystem problem? Ik tried to look for clues in the sourcefiles on the webserver but couldn't find useful info there...
    Any idea's anyone? Help is appreciated smile
    Regards,
    Arjen
