Background and Context

Add some information about the overview, history, context of your ePortfolio project(s).

It's important to other institutions that they know enough about your situation and institutional background. This kind of background information is necessary for them to decide how they want to implement ePortfolio at their institutions using the OSP.

Goals, Users, Processes, and Activities

Describe how your ePortfolio program is designed and how the OSP was implemented. If it is a part of a larger program/project, describe it briefly, too.

To ensure others can learn from your experience, details are important. While in general, snapshots should be short (and pithy) don't skimp on details that others' might learn from.

Impact of Use

Describe your assessment of the implementation efforts and the results. Include or link to assessment data, portfolio examples or resources that demonstrate the successes.

Assessment need not be formal, you might want to report on comments from your students/faculty. Links to assessment data (including results from surveys, transcripts /recordings from interviews, etc.) are great ways to give others a sense of what were actually accomplished through this work.

What local resources/support materials did you develop? What did you like about using the current version of the OSP? How could the future OSP and/or your portfolio program(s) be improved?
