Login to Aston ePortfolio
National committee of Inquiry in Higher Education recommends that universities
provide their students with ‘a means by which students can monitor, build and
reflect upon their personal development’. An ePortfolio is a fantastic way for
Aston students to achieve this.
its simplest form an e-Portfolio is much like the traditional artists portfolio
in that it enables the user to keep a collection of work together in one place.
However instead of, for example, a group
of paintings an e-Portfolio allows the user to keep a collection of digital or
electronic items together such as word documents, photos, graphs, diagrams and
power point presentations all within a single secure online environment. In
this way an e-Portfolio is a record of achievement that provides evidence of
the users abilities, skills and knowledge.
However the e-Portfolio system Aston has chosen for
its students offers much more than just a repository for electronic documents. PebblePAD
Aston’s e-Portfolio allows you to take charge of your learning and the goals
you want to achieve at university and beyond. For example, PebblePAD allows you
to take skills audits to appraise your personal skill set, create step by step
action plans to help you achieve your goals and gives you the space to reflect
on all aspects of your learning.
