Digication and ePortfolios
What is Digication?
ePortfolios are online collections of student work. Digication is BU’s supported platform used to create ePortfolios. Users can upload audio, video, and written material to an ePortfolio, which is then accessible within the BU community or to the public through a shareable URL. Some students use their ePortfolios as digital resumes, but most often at BU ePortfolios are used to assess learning outcomes. With Digication e-Portfolios, evidence of learning can be collected over time to display long-term projects and document growth.
Developments in Digication
Digication will soon release an update with improvements to the software. Tools that improve users’ experiences have been added, such as drag and drop tools. The original version required a flurry of “add,” “edit,” “save,” and “publish” buttons, but now content is autosaved as it is uploaded.
