What is Folioz?
If you’re wondering what Folioz or an ePortfolio is, why you might want one and what it can do for you, then read on. You’re about to find out.
At the simplest level, Folioz is two things: an ePortfolio and a social networking system combined. An ePortfolio is a system in which students can record “evidence of lifelong learning” – such as essays, artwork or other such things they produce that can be stored digitally. Such things are known as artefacts in Folioz. Social networking systems need little introduction – think Bebo, Facebook or MySpace (back in the old days). Basically, they give a way for people to interact with their friends and create their own online communities.
But Folioz is much more than just a place to store files. Folioz also includes blogging, a résumé builder, and web services to integrate with other platforms.
