Maintained by andreas riepl
Start ePortfolio-work within Moodle - a compact block with everything needed to build up competency-profiles. Establish a student-centered way of contributing within Moodle. Key-features are course-independant eportfolio-work througout Moodle, publishing of views, association of artefacts with competencies, integration of OpenBadges.

Moodle 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5

This block can easily be added to a Moodle installation and provides ePortfolio functionality for each student and teacher. Students can build up their ePortfolios collecting weblinks, files and notes within individually defined categories, publish ePortfolio-artefacts to specific target-groups using views to get reflections and comments submitted by other persons as well as import uploaded assignments from within the Moodle-installation. In addition the ePortfolio can be saved as a SCORM-package which is a standardized scheme and file format for the transportation of learning-based data and can be used cross-platform for further work. Also a connection with the newest module "exabis competencies” which enables users to associate ePortfolio artefacts with competencies can be made. The current version also connects to the SmartPhone-App epop - www.epop.at - where associated competencies and examples are rolled out to mobile devices.

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.

Regards,
David

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

Debug info: Table 'pyspace_lms.mdl_block_exaportuser' already exists

• 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?
Thx.
Kees.

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
blocks/exaport/shared_item.php?access=view/hash/3-77ba1eaf&itemid=1&att=
Could you please let me know, what shall I do to fix this?
Thanks

Hello Iroshini, can you please try this version - we haven't published to Moodle.org yet: https://github.com/gtn/exaport/archive/experimental.zip - regards, Andreas
• Mon, Oct 5, 2015, 5:47 PM
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.

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:
