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.

    Estimado tengo el siguiente error al querer compartir el portafolio:

    Could not load preference popup_provider_block_exaport_sharing_permitted. Make sure the component and name you supplied to message_send() are valid.

    kind regards

    hello helga, please send a screenshot - did you take this version of exabis eportolio?: https://github.com/gtn/exaport/archive/experimental.zip - regards Andreas

    The 2.7 version looks great! However, I am experiencing the lightbox issue with the "Items" portion of view creation on both the official release and the experimental version on github. I have a screenshot but am not sure how to send it. Basically, when adding "Items" to a view, the lightbox overlay darkens the screen and then nothing else happens. For me, this only happens with "Items". I can add Personal Items, Headertext, etc. with no problems.

    We are experimenting with the possibility of using exabis e-portfolio in a large installation of course in Indonesia for School Principal's Professional development. We will have courses with potentially large numbers of students (several thousand). We will organize learners into groups for interactive elements such as Forums etc. We cant see how a portfolio or file in a portfolio can be shared to a group. We can see external and internal sharing options, and in the internal option individual users in a course can be selected (or all by select all) but we can't see how we can restrict this to a students' group , or link a portfolio to a group. Additionally it would be good if we had a quick or automated way to allocate specific users such as the students tutor and supervisor.

    Hello Greg, we will look into the group connection, regarding the quick automated allocation - we have already done that in the experimental track on git - views can be automatically published to teachers of a course, regards Andreas

    I'm using exabis v2.7-r1 (2014121900) (the version.php omits the main version 4.2) with Moodle v. 2.7, and it seems to be working fine mostly. But the SCORM-Export option shows a blank page and I get parsing errors in the logfile:
    apache2: PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ')' in /srv/moodle/blocks/exaport/export_scorm.php on line 167

    It looks like the third operand for the ternary operator is missing in this line.

    hello david, we corrected the problem, please download newest version from experimental-branch at github, regards andreas

    De-installed a lot of plug-ins following problems with Moodle 2.9. Came to re-install exaport (we purged every vestige of it from the system) but keep getting:

    DDL sql execution error

    More information about this error
    Debug info: Table '`pyspace_lms`.`mdl_block_exaportuser`' already exists

    The table varies. Please help????
  • Thu, Jul 2, 2015, 3:46 AM
    P.S. The table and ibd files are definitely NOT present before the upgrade begins.

    Hi Andreas,

    In the description of e-Portfolio you write: "Key-features are <...> integration of OpenBadges."
    I can't find that option (import badges). How does that works?
  • Thu, Jul 9, 2015, 4:18 PM

    Other question: do you have a manual of version 4.3?

    I downloaded and installed Exabis Moodle 2.9.2. It is a great tool and thanks for developing it.
    But I get the following error, when clicking the "show" link when accessing a public view.
    Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: print_header() can not be used any more. Please use $PAGE methods instead.
    It generated under the following URL
    Could you please let me know, what shall I do to fix this?
