The Uncommon Core

Using Core Portfolio

Students upload to their Core Portfolio course-specific assignments such as a text reflection (Word document or pdf) or video.

Google Sites: Fall 2015 first-year and new transfer students will use Google Sites for their Core Portfolio. Training is embedded in existing coursework.
P@N: Sophomores and Juniors have the choice to continue using P@N (otherwise known as Chalk and Wire) or switch their Core Portfolio to Google Sites

Note: P@N is not Moodle! Unlike Moodle, P@N is not set up into courses or modules. Student portfolios, such as the Core Portfolio, will be used for multiple courses. Students may also create a custom portfolio for their own personal or professional purposes.
