IMS ePortfolio Specification

Various authors, IMS, Jul 14, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The IMS e-portfolio specification was recently released. The intent of this specification is to encourage interoperability between e-portfolio systems, as is clear in the use cases. And it seems to reflect a view of portfolios as being used in assessment, or at best, as a sort of resume. I don't know, maybe that's good. What I did like was the idea of support for different 'views' of a portfolio, allowing an owner to tailor the output for different pruposes. Also worth noting is the identification of portfolio owners using the IMS Learner Information Package, which again enables (and maybe assumes) a tight connection between learner goals, learning outcomes, portfolio contents, and assessment. See also An overview of e-portfolios, by George Lorenzo and John Ittelson.
