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.   

For a detailed documentation refer to Admins' manual or the Teachers' manual.

Take a look at the video to see how it works in schools:

    Dear developers!
    Thanks for the extremely useful block. I've encountered several errors with 4.6.0:
    1) when students try to export the CV to europass xml, they get an "PHP catchable fatal error" with the following debug:
    Debug info: Argument 1 passed to DOMNode::appendChild() must be an instance of DOMNode, null given, called in [dirroot]/blocks/exaport/lib/resumelib.php on line 848 and defined
    Error code: codingerror
    Stack trace:
    line 433 of /lib/setuplib.php: coding_exception thrown
    line ? of unknownfile: call to default_error_handler()
    line 1124 of /blocks/exaport/lib/resumelib.php: call to DOMNode->appendChild()
    line 848 of /blocks/exaport/lib/resumelib.php: call to europassXMLEmployersEducations()
    line 51 of /blocks/exaport/resume.php: call to europassXML()
    Output buffer:
    Notice: Undefined variable: arrayIDs in /var/www/html_moodle/moodle/blocks/exaport/lib/resumelib.php on line 1236
    if I change return $arrayIDs; to return 0;, everything seems to work...

    2) unable to drag personal info into views, it just is not saved there (the dialog pops out after dragging, I choose params, when I click Save in the dialog, nothing goes into the view - it still is empty).

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    Нам очень нравится блок Exabis E-Portfolio, но недавно мы столкнулись с проблемой.
    Если мы удаляем пользователя, у которого был открыт общий доступ к папке, то потом, когда просматриваем других пользователей, выдается ошибка

    We really like the Exabis E-Portfolio, but recently we ran into a problem.
    If we delete a user who has been shared with the folder, then when we scan other users, we get an error

    Debug info: SELECT id FROM {user} WHERE id = ? AND deleted = ?
    [array (
    0 => '167',
    1 => 0,
    Error code: invaliduser
    Stack trace:
    line 1526 of /lib/dml/moodle_database.php: dml_missing_record_exception thrown
    line 1502 of /lib/dml/moodle_database.php: call to moodle_database->get_record_select()
    line 6212 of /lib/accesslib.php: call to moodle_database->get_record()
    line 61 of /blocks/exaport/lib/lib.php: call to context_user::instance()
    line 760 of /blocks/exaport/lib/sharelib.php: call to block_exaport_get_category_icon()
    line 73 of /blocks/exaport/view_items.php: call to block_exaport\get_categories_shared_to_user()

    167 - id удаленного пользователя. Можно исправить эту ошибку? Я восстановил пользователя через mysql и удалил его общую папку вручную, но если таких пользователей будет много, это займет много времени.


    167 - id of the remote user. Can you fix this error? I restored the user through mysql and deleted his shared folder manually, but if there are many such users, it will take a long time.

    Thank you

    it looks like one (old?) issue has turned up again. I've posted a detailed issue here:

    In short: Media-links from encrypted HTTPS sources are rewritten to unencrypted HTTP. This leads to "mixed content" error with modern browsers and the content is blocked.

    Hello, I'm Francisco and I work with version 4.4 of the plugin compatible with Moodle 2.8.
    Among the requirements I was asked to meet was that a teacher should be able to see the content of their students' portfolios and I had the problem that at the time of sharing the category/folder, in the teacher's view does not show the structure of categories/folders and is of vital importance because it generates confusion. What would you recommend me?
    In other topics, what sites or forums do you recommend me to consult documentation?
    Awaiting your reply, and thanking you in advance. I say goodbye
