ePortfolios

UAB ePortfolio by eInstruction Logo

At UAB, "We envision students using an electronic portfolio as an integral part of their education to reflect on learning, to integrate their knowledge, to learn more deeply, to shape curricular choices and goals, and to showcase skills and accomplishments." (University of Alabama at Birmingham, Workshop, February, 2008).


An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is a purposeful and meaningful collection of work which can include text and media files. Several portfolios can be created to serve different purposes. Each ePortfolio has a purpose and is formatted by its owner to match designated requirements.

Students can showcase skills and accomplishments for prospective employers or entrance to graduate/professional programs. The ePortfolio can also serve as a personal archive of documents.

Used in a course or program curriculum, ePortfolios can demonstrate student's achievement of required course or program competencies/outcomes as well as the process of getting there.

UAB has selected TaskStream as the campus supported ePortfolio solution. For more information about TaskStream and to setup an account contact Terry Harrington in UAB Instructional Technology (tharring@uab.edu 205-934-0417).

To participate in the "ePortfolios: A Hands-On Introduction" event, please visit the Training and Educational Offerings page for a listing of session dates and times.

    Streaming media and blended learning is a mixture or combination of instructional technology with actual job tasks in order to create a harmonious effect of learning and working via the internet.
     
    Streaming media technology enables the real time or on demand distribution of audio, video and multimedia on the Internet. Streaming media is the simultaneous transfer of digital media (video, voice and data/slides) so that it is received as a continuous real-time stream. Streamed data is transmitted by a server application and received and displayed in real-time by client applications. These applications can start displaying video or playing back audio as soon as enough data has been received and stored in the receiving station's buffer. A streamed file is simultaneously downloaded and viewed, but leaves behind no physical file on the viewer's machine.
     
    The point is that blended learning and streaming media means different things to different people, which illustrates its widely untapped potential; so therefore, blended learning is a great way to initiate an organization into learning because it benefits learners, the training staff, and the organization's bottom line. It allows organizations to gradually move learners from traditional classrooms in small steps, making change easier to accept with streaming media. Working in a blended environment enables instructors to help their students to develop the skills needed for blended learning in small increments. Training professionals can move small sections online as the needed learning skills are developed.
    Blended learning and streaming media allows organizations to supplement or compliment existing courseware rather than replace it.
     

    Streaming Media products can be grouped into one of four types.

     
    Audio Presentation - An audio presentation has only an audio component. (EX: Streaming web radio station) 
     
    Video Presentation - A video presentation has only a video component. (EX: Streaming a video of an activity or process to present an example in support of a lecture or online training situation.) 
     
    Unsynchronized Presentation - An unsynchronized presentation has two or more media components (ie: Audio, Video) that have been captured and transmitted as a single stream. Since all elements are in a single file there is little or no control over the individual components. The resulting file is usually quite large resulting in transmission problems. 
     
    Synchronized Presentation - A synchronized presentation has two or more media components (ie: Audio, Video, Data/Slides) that are transmitted simultaneously. These components are linked/synchronized by adding synchronization points or timing points. If for some reason the media components are received out of sequence, the streaming software maintains or restores the presentation synchronization by simply matching the timing points. Since all elements are in separate files they can be transmitted as individual streams there is much more control over the individual components. The resulting file is usually much smaller thereby reducing transmission bandwidth requirements.
