Advancing ePortfolio Assessment
Angel Learning has released Angel ePortfolio Version 2.1. Developed in collaboration with the Angel user community, the new version provides enhanced usability and tighter integration with the Angel Learning Management Suite. A new ePortfolio drop box in the Angel LMS allows instructors to assign ePortfolio work from within the LMS, making it easier for faculty to incorporate ePortfolio activities and assessment into course curricula. Version 2.1 also allows instructors to set portfolio achievement-exercise due dates, to prevent students from modifying an assignment or its attached artifacts beyond a specified date.
