HBCU Summit: OER & ePortfolio Best Practices & Designing OER-Based Multi-Media Modular eBooks (Part 1)
Concurrent Session 9
9:45am - 10:15am: OER & ePortfolio Best Practices
Denise Malloy, Southwest Tennessee Community College
A well-designed and properly planned e-portfolio program can be an incredible tool for one’s institution. ePortfolios provide authentic assessments of student learning and promote deeper learning in our students. Faculty can also create their own ePortfolios to showcase the work they are doing in the area of OER. This presentation offers a generic approach to simple OER & ePortfolio utilization. Attendees along with the presenter will share ideas for ePortfolio creation and artifact building. Information can be useful for ANY OER and ePortfolio platform.

Learn about the instructional design process for producing interactive OER ebooks with embedded videos and assessments. The modular aspect of this type of ebook allows students with limited internet access and low bandwidth connection to download smaller chunks of materials at a time. This has been a much-needed tool for the students in certain areas of Africa. The Virtual University of Senegal (VUS), a model in West Africa, has grown to almost 30,000 students in a few years. Integrating such eLearning innovations are essential in accommodating a growing population of students and collecting research data that can improve eLearning practices.
