IT Smart: Blackboard’s Portfolio

Portfolio is a tool within UConn’s Blackboard learning management system that enables instructors and students to collect, organize, and share completed work.  This material can then be incorporated into various courses or serve as a resource for students when they apply for jobs, promotions, and graduate programs.  We have received feedback that content reuse was inadequately supported in the base HuskyCT environment.  The Portfolio tool is part of our overall licensed capability, and we have enabled it to better support pedagogy and the progress of our students, both at the University and beyond.  Self-help for instructors and students is available online.
