Brigham Young University – Idaho Selects Portfolium’s ePortfolios For 44,000 Students
Brigham Young University – Idaho (BYU-Idaho) has selected Portfolium to provide ePortfolios to over 44,000 students as part of their First Year Experience (FYE), career readiness, and co-curricular programs. BYU-Idaho seeks to help their students more effectively represent the skills they develop both in curricular and co-curricular educational experiences for the entire student lifecycle. As a result, BYU-Idaho hopes to use the analytics provided to extract useful Student Learning Outcome (SLO) data and guide curriculum development based on applicability to available jobs.
“We are excited to partner with BYU-Idaho, a leader in student-centered education practices, to help their students build an ePortfolio that displays an increased view of their learning experience both in and outside of the classroom,” said Troy Markowitz, VP Academic Partnerships at Portfolium.
BYU-Idaho’s goal is to have every student with a robust portfolio that represents their learning and skill development across the entire general and co-curricular education. As both a software platform and a network, Portfolium supports the student learning success lifecycle by advancing the shared interests of higher ed, students, and employers.
Portfolium’s learning graph links student learning outcomes from co-curricular and academic learning artifacts to a digital marketplace of internships and jobs requiring those same competencies. BYU-Idaho students and alumni will benefit from free, lifelong access to Portfolium, and BYU-Idaho hopes to expand upon its ability to measure student progress through and beyond graduation using Portfolium’s reporting and analytics capabilities.
